Mission Laïque Française - Merci !

Big thank you to Jean-François Lopez (MLF-North America) for providing inspiring professional development workshops for two days this November for our staff in all grades. Jean-François, from Dallas International School, is the Pedagogical Coordinator for La Mission Laïque Française in North America. He travels to the 22 MLF member schools to ensure common practices and to provide up to date training on various topics. The workshop focused on how to move from oral to written language. Using this year's theme of the Four Seasons, the classrooms will be collaborating to write a school-wide fairy tale following the adventures of a squirrel. With the teaching faculty, there was much discussion about sharing resources and follow-up via video conferencing is planned. Jean-François Lopez will be back this Spring.
