Question with 1 note

imbasicallyaprincess said: Hey I saw your inquiry about a pen pal and possibly teaching at an international school in Norway, and I can not recommend the International School of Stavanger enough. I had the pleasure of going there for three and a half years, and it was the best experience of my life, not just my schooling. The school creates a lovely atmosphere and it is so friendly and magical, even. It's so diverse and happy, I'd love to go back.

Thanks for the tip! I think I will probably have to go back and get a proper teaching certificate before I make the move to an international school. Not just an English degree, not just an ESL teaching certificate, but probably a proper state degree.

But I would love to check it out. Thanks again.

drunkkidcatholiic said: You're so inspiring! All of your posts make me realize that I'm not alone in my struggles, and motivate me to continue to recover...but you also inspire me as a fellow future English teacher, because the passion you have for teaching is something I hope I can also emulate :)

englishmajorinrepair:

Aww, this is the absolute best!! You’re so amazing, and you already have so much passion for literature and education :). Thank you <3.

It looks like a cat version of Toothless.

Clawless

harkens back to the first movie where Toothless’ mannerism is obviously inspired (among others) from a feline creature. This is beyond adorable argh XD
