    Thrown in the big end to teach PYP art last year yet Im a French teacher. Would love to learn with you:)

  2. Sharon says:

    Somehow as I was researching Art substitute Internationally I came across your blog. What energy you have. I retired in 2011 from teaching PYP art for 11 years in an international school in Germany. If you would like to communicate and exchange ideas or resources I would be happy to keep in touch with you. I live in Nova Scotia on the balmy south shore and am currently contemplating some travel opportunities.

Have a dose of what life is really like living here – from my single-handed destruction of the Turkish language, random arguments with random relatives about everything from apples to vaginas to learning the secrets to making the perfect içli köfte! Highs or lows this is my observations from the melting pot of crazy that is my life in Mersin.
