Yikes!

Marcel is a teacher! He just got his first substitute teaching job today! He's getting PAID to teach!

After 5 and a half years of university, lots of stress and agony, way too many assignments that I had to edit... he's actually teaching!

He got thrown into the deep end today - teaching high school French Immersion (and two of his classes are law). Yikes! His French is a little weak for that. But the electronic "sub-finder" that called our house last night lets you either "accept" or "decline" and doesn't give you an option for "wait a second - I have to call my husband home from his cousin's place and let HIM decide." So I hit "accept" and thus launched him rather haphazardly into his teaching career.

I just got an email from him saying he's doing well and the students are quite well behaved. Whew!

Good for him. Around here immersion classes are often loaded with the good students, so maybe that helps.

That's awesome - and lucky he got such well behaved kids. I've been hearing horror stories from others.
