by Pamela Pascal, proud member of the #teacher5etoiles Squad
Do you believe in fate? I do. I have no doubt that everything happens for a reason. That’s why I strongly believe that my arrival in the beautiful #teacher5etoiles squad is much more than a happy coincidence.
Truthfully, I did not follow the “traditional” path to join the squad. Quite the opposite! You see, at first, I had registered for the Observatoire program, which was sponsored by the ACPI. It consisted of a three-week introductory internship in French immersion teaching. Unfortunately, the latter was cancelled due to a certain worldwide pandemic…
However, I did not lose hope. I knew that I could find my place in this innovative project that is Teacher 5 Étoiles. So, I brewed myself a cup of hot cocoa and snatched up my computer to explore every nook and cranny of teacher5etoiles.ca.
While browsing the many pages, I felt at home and blessed to have before my eyes an opportunity to share my passion for teaching, as well as my love for this romantic language, and, lastly, my interest in French immersion with a team as passionate as I am.
I therefore began the process of becoming a student ambassador for the Teacher 5 étoiles campaign. Following an exchange of emails, I finally received the response I was waiting for: I was officially admitted to the #teacher5etoiles squad! From that moment on, I knew that a world of possibilities had opened up for me.
The moral of this article is that when one door closes, another one opens. I’m not going to lie to you, I was very saddened when I heard that the internship had been cancelled. However, it was well worth it as the unfortunate circumstance turned out to be a great opportunity.
That being said, never stop believing in your dreams, because you never know what the future holds.
