Job Searching

Hi everyone! 


I'm looking for a job in America as a French citizen and boy, am I struggling. I have a master's in journalism and am more than qualified for a number of jobs but no one will even reply to any of my applications because of sponsorship. I'm currently an au pair so I would also be willing to take a job as a nanny. Honestly, if anyone needs me to scrub their toilets and is willing to sponsor me, I'll take it! 

Any advice?

The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales
Directed by Benjamin Renner & Patrick Imbert

France, 2017, 1h20
Rated G. Recommended age 5+ | In English

From the creators of the Academy Award®-nominated Ernest & Celestine comes another hilarious, heartwarming tale of animal misfits destined to become a classic. The countryside isn’t always as calm and peaceful as it’s made out to be, and the animals on this farm are particularly agitated: a fox who mothers a family of chicks, a rabbit who plays the stork, and a duck who wants to be Santa Claus. If you think life in the country is a walk in the park, think again!

Doors open at 2pm, screening at 2:30pm. Arts & crafts activities before the film!

Révolution bilingue à Manhattan

Plus de 100 personnes ont assisté à la réunion d'hier soir pour soutenir davantage de programmes bilingues en français à Manhattan, réunion organisée par Stéphane Lautner, un parent franco-américain qui a travaillé sans relâche pour créer un programme dans le district 2 (j'encourage tout le monde à le contacter et à l'aider).
Le conseiller municipal Ben Kallos, la présidente du CEC2, Maud Maron, la principale de PS84 Evelyn Lolis, la surintendante Donalda Chumney ont partagé leurs points de vue sur cette possibilité. Je crois que tous ont été impressionnés par le taux de participation énorme et par la détermination des parents. J'ai rappelé à tous que les parents organisés ont du pouvoir et qu'ils ont également le droit d'accéder à des programmes bilingues. La loi est de leur côté. En outre, l'enseignement bilingue est un bien public qui devrait être proposé à tous les élèves. Les programmes bilingues peuvent transformer positivement une école, une communauté, voire une ville comme New York. #révolutionbilingue

Over 100 people attended last night's meeting in support of more French dual-language programs in Manhattan organized by Stephane Lautner, a French-American parent who has worked tirelessly to create a program in District 2 (I encourage everyone to contact him and help). Councilman Ben Kallos, CEC2 President Maud Maron, PS84 Principal Evelyn Lolis, Superintendent Donalda Chumney shared their views on this possibility. I believe all were impressed by the huge turn-out and by the parents' determination. I reminded everyone that organized parents have power.They also have a right to gain access to dual-language programs. The law is on their side. Furthermore, dual-language education is a public good that should be offered to all students. Dual-language programs can positively transform a school, a community, even a city like New York. #bilingualrevolution

Now firmly established in the New York educational landscape, the 2019 Bilingual Education Fair, organized by French Morning, is expanding its offer for its sixth edition, which will be held on Saturday, November 23, at Fordham University (get your discounted tickets here now).

Schools, extracurricular activities, booksellers, publishers and other exhibitors, some sixty in all, will be there to help you navigate the available offers in bilingual education (see the list of exhibitors here). About ten languages will be represented. On the French side, all the schools in the New York area will be there, public or private. It’s the opportunity to ask all your questions about bilingual education in one place.

Conferences and roundtables

As every year, the conference program will provide parents and educators with an opportunity to learn and discuss, including about controversial topics in the world of bilingual education. Bilingualism and multiculturalism in public schools (at 10:30 a.m.) will host elected officials and representatives from the New York City Department of Education to discuss the challenges facing public schools.

Later in the day, Mariam Ottimofiore Navaid, a specialist in third culture kids, to whom she has just devoted a book (“This Messy Mobile Life”), will lead a round table, Raising Happy Kids Between Cultures and Languages (at 1:30 p.m.), where we will discuss strategies and advice for families with kids of one culture raised in another.

Other conferences include: Navigating Special Education in New York City and the Bilingual Child with Special Needs (11:30 a.m.); Trials and Tribulations of maintaining minority languages alive: the example of Sardinian, Catalan, Alsatian and Breton languages (11:30 a.m.); Singing and speaking: reciprocal influences of music and language in early childhood development and learning (2:30 p.m.). Sign up for conferences for free here.

Bilingual education awards

For the first time, the Bilingual Fair will recognize six people whose work has contributed to the development of bilingual education in New York. Nominations are open until October 30 in the following categories: Leader, Trailblazer, Visionary, Student, Parent, Patron. A jury of experts will select the winner of each category. The trophies will be presented during the ceremony (1 p.m.) presided over by Gale Brewer, Manhattan Borough President.

Hip hop workshop

This year, the programme of activities and conferences has been enriched. For children and teenagers, in addition to a multitude of free activities with our partners, we’ll welcome the French rapper Hippocampe Fou. The inventiveness and creativity of this singer-songwriter’s texts, a combination of rap and slam poetry, earned him a loyal audience in France. Twenty lucky children and teenagers will be able to participate in a two-hour session led by “Hippo” himself, which will culminate in the creation of a group song performed in front of the Bilingual Education Fair audience. The first workshop is from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for French-speaking children aged 8 to 11 years; the second workshop is from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. for French-speaking adolescents aged 12 to 15 years. Free registration required (register here).
