Last Day at Concordia
Holy cow. This was my last day at Concordia International School of Shanghai. It was a long hard day. I began by teaching Véronique’s French IV class at 8 AM. Only half of the students were there today, but I did a lesson that involved subjunctive (as Véronique had requested), as well as past tenses, persons, y and en pronouns. It was such a thrill to teach French to real kids! I love teaching kids! The Mandarin teachers came to observe the lesson. I know that they did not follow the grammar we were doing, but I hope that they saw me implement the techniques that we have been discussing all week long. Then I observed six classes. Even though it was a long hard day, I see genuine improvement in every single teacher! That is so reassuring. I loved meeting with the teachers and telling them how good they are.
