Vivez la langue!

Paris 2009. Orange hair and red skin c/o living on the beach in Les Sables d'Olonne.

I came 'cross this video today at Dear Edna and couldn't resist sharing. This week my lovely Canadian principal, who shares my French passion, gave me a sparkly new lanyard { it sparkles-- literally } and told me they'd try to let me teach French next year to entice me to stay. { It's currently not in our budget. } Also, this semester she arranged the schedule so that I now teach 8 classes, rather than 7, but none of them are larger than 37 students! It's much better. Here's to fabulous supervisors and hoping for more time to blog and less stress this semester { and French in the future! }

Vivez la langue = Live the language. Study abroad, people! / Hourra = Hooray!

You teach EIGHT classes but none are bigger than 37??? And this is a good thing? Oh, my. My last year before I retired I taught 6 classes out of a 7 period day, and I had 150+ students. I did NOT like it.

Haha, well I'm trying to be positive. Last semester I taught 7/7 but had classes of up to 50 students. Now I teach 8/8 (we have common prep in the morning) and the smaller size really helps (though the class with 37 is still a bit much..)
