AATF Commission on Teacher Recruitment & Retention
In our profession, beauty in the arts and literature is all around us. We have the opportunity every day to nourish our own aesthetic lives as well as those of our students.

French teachers have an amazing career!

Do you have a favorite aesthetic activity that you offer your students?
French teachers have fun! Another opportunity to celebrate with students. Feb 8-17, Carnaval au Québec: snow sculptures, dog sled races, parades, and canoes crossing the icy St. Lawrence River. With resources like Roch Carrier's "Le Chandail de Hockey," Mes Aieux's "Dégénérations" and writers like Pierre Vallières, French teachers get to appreciate our French-speaking neighbor to the north.
