Southland and Dunedin - fantastic network and jobs available!

Last week was a pleasure to head back to where it all started for me - Dunedin, where I went to school and trained to be a teacher and Southland where my first teaching job stole my heart and propelled my ambition.

How lucky is NZ to have teachers of French from Cape Reinga to Bluff who are passionate, dedicated professionals who are doing everything to ensure that each student gets the best experience of learning the French language and culture. Elizabeth Roy at Southland Girls' High School has found that the AIM method is working really well for her junior students. Elizabeth also has a supportive management team who are actively promoting languages to their students and as a result every language at Southland Girls' has seen impressive growth in numbers for 2017 - contact me to get in touch with Elizabeth to know more.
Mary Marshall from Verdon College is introducing an Accounting standard in her Level 1 French course next year - this will add a new dimension for students to consider and could be something you think about...if Accounting isn't your forté then perhaps Health, Food and Nutrition or Media Studies takes your fancy. Let me know if you'd like to speak with Mary or have a look at her Accounting resources.

Christine at James Hargest College in Invercargill has started the ball rolling on Langsem 2017 for the Southland and Otago regions. Contact me to get in touch with Christine and pick her brains for ideas for your own region.

Dunedin has some open doors with jobs for 2017 and would be an excellent place for new teachers to work with supportive colleagues and lovely students while enjoying affordable housing and easy traffic. Sing out if you'd like to know how to get your foot in the door in this wonderful southern city.
