Being the new kid on the block can be difficult for students — but for teacher Tim Worthy, it proved to be just as tough.

Worthy filed a grievance through his union, the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario, regarding a transfer from one school to another under the Limestone District School Board in Kingston, Ont.

The board transferred Worthy from Welborne Avenue Public School, where he had taught for six years, to Truedell Public School.
