E-mail from the rectorat of Grenoble

Nous avons le plaisir de vous proposer un poste en tant qu’assistante de langue anglaise dans l’académie de Grenoble.

That’s right, I got renewed!!!!!! Yay for having an income again!

The only sucky thing is that it’s an hour from here by train. Plus my two schools are not close together, so I can’t walk between them.

But whatever. I’m so excited!!!

    Yes! Such great news — toutes mes félicitations ! I agree with Joy: you can read on the train, AND correct your students’ homework too! It will end up being a good time for you to get things done. So you can make the best of it!

    Congratulations! My second year I taught in Millau, which is an hour from where I live, and it all worked out. In fact, it was almost better because they put all my hours over 2 days so that I didn’t have to make the trajet every day… so I had the rest of the week for other things.

    yay! you deserve it, I couldn’t believe it when you weren’t going to be renewed. Too bad about the distance but at least you can utilise it as already mentioned for reading, sleeping or correctly homework. French trains are pretty comfy.

  • samir benkhrourou

    please can someone help me find who this lady is.
    she’s registered on this site, here’s her profile:

    http://www.muslima.com/member_profile.cfm?ID=1518213&searchposition=121&searchtotal=770

    she’s from Grenoble, Rhône-Alpes, France 31 years old, her name is katia, but this is probably just a nickname on the site, her nationality is lebanese.

    I’d appreciate it if anyone would help me.

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at a university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling and being an American abroad.
