Dear friends,

Today, I got great news : I am given a new teaching position, this time for the whole year (full time job).
I will be teaching in a secondary school. I will have very special classes, as these will be classes with children in high scholar difficulty. This kind of classes is usually hard to deal with.
It will be a real challenge for me.

I don't have more details yet, as I need to wait for tomorrow to talk to the director of the school. I don't even know exactly what I will have to teach!!! These will be biotechnologies, but this is a very wide area.

The school is closer than the previous one, so it should not be a very long drive to go to (maybe less than 30 minutes).

I will give you more details when I can.

I will begin next week, so I won't really have time to prepare the first lessons  bear_wacko  bear_wacko  bear_wacko , given that I won't be home this week-end due to a 24 hour scooter race  bear_whistle !

Oh well, I promised myself not to stress about school, so I will stay zen.  bear_cool

So, one full year with a salary!  :dance:  :dance:  :dance:  :dance:

Malko is still waiting to be given a new teaching position. I guess he will get some news soon.

Beary hugs,

Great, Sophie!  Congratulations to you!  And I love your idea of "staying zen."  I could use some of that in my own life. 

Have a great race and good luck next week!   bear_flower

Wonderful Sophie!!!  :dance: You will be a wonderful teacher. :clap:
I just started a part time teaching job last week and I am excited also, but I must admit with my sons starting school, and with a bear show on the horizon. I'm not doing so hot at "staying zen" I love that idea though and I will try!

Good for you, Sophie, and for your lucky students!
