Good bye, Farewell, Adieu....

Emily is leaving this week and we are all very sad because everybody really appreciated her. We hope she will be able to come back next year...And after all who knows? Here is the last message she has posted for you.

Although I have just spent two wonderful weeks of spring vacation exploring Paris, I am sad at the same time because my contract as an English assistant at College Claude Chappe will end on April 30th. I would like to take this opportunity to say what a wonderful experience it has been. Because I had no prior teaching experience, I started the year somewhat nervous, but both the teachers and the student were so welcoming to me that I felt comfortable right away. I believe that the students benefited from their time with me by improving their conversational English, and I certainly learned a lot from them as well. I have asked for a renewal of my contract as an English assistant for next year, and I will eagerly await my response during the month of May. In the mean time, I would like to wish everyone a great end of the school year and a great summer vacation. Hopefully I will see you all next year!
