Teaching French: Connecting with other french teachers

There is always a need for french teachers in our district. We have a growing French Immersion program in multiple schools and a lack of teachers who are fluent in writing, speaking and reading in french.

As such, my grade 12 french has me more qualified than many, though not quite experienced enough to take on a french immersion class full time. I do teach on-call for french immersion and teach FSL (French as a second language)

There are so many awesome lessons available for teachers and our district offers teachers free french teaching classes where you practice french and have great taken-home units and lessons.

This is a great way to connect with french teachers and new-to-french teachers. I took the course and loved it! A lot of my teacher colleagues are in the current session and enjoying it.

Some online resources to get connected with french immersion and FSL educators and ideas?
