International Day

One of the biggest perks of working in a high school is the competitions. The students will get behind anything you throw at them. (Apparently so will I.) Debate competition? Bam, ranked third in the nation.

International Day? Piece of cake. Each class was assigned a country and we had two weeks to turn our classroom into France, in our spare time. On D-Day, judges toured the school and marked each class based on decorations, food and performance.

We started planning a bit late, but pulled together a romantic ambience, an amazing replica of the Eiffel Tower, a WWI Museum, eclairs to sell in our “cafe”, and a pretty awesome performance to go with it all (which included a violin solo and a flash mob).

Needless to say, we won Best Concept. I can get used to this!
