Réception des classes américaines à l'Elysée par le Président Miterrand, 1988

My responsability to promote the Back to Back through the primary schools in America was to meet the superintendant of each school district. Once convinced that the program was good for his fifth grade students, I met with the school principals to see who would volunteer to host the French class. Then meeting with the parents to explain the program.

In one year, I usually met with about one hundred school districts ( three per day ) to convince about ten of them. Constant travelling, over 200 000 miles per year, driving, flying!!

From Chicago to New York, from Miami to Anchorage, from Phoenix to Seattle, there were no limits to my work: promoting the French langage and culture throughout the United States.
