In Paris, there is no better gym than the street, no better sport than life itself. And though the French girl “workout” includes all of the same criteria as its American counterparts, it comes with a few minor adjustments, as demonstrated by stylist and model Caroline de Maigret.

The 5-Step French Girl Workout With Model Caroline de Maigret
Ooh, I love her shoes!! In La Boum 2, Penelope wears blue and red striped Adidas shoes like that in a scene and it made me REALLY want some :> I searched and searched for them but Adidas doesn't make them :< I got really cute knockoff ones, though 😺🥐🍓
As a Paris lover I cannot deny that I love every single video that pretends all french people are Parisians, but Vogue could work a little harder on this... It's incomparable to "10 ways to be parisian with Caroline de Maigret" by i-D: it looks like it was shot on a bad phone, with a song on top of it to hide how bad the recording of the audio was. Anyway, I adore Caroline and how after a whole book of teaching you how to be Parisian wherever you are she tells you the whole secret is to just be confident about yourself.
It's weird because I actually live in Paris and I see so many women working out - even old ladies in the Jardin du Luxembourg and along the river. Running is becoming really popular nowadays among folks in Paris. This is a funny pastiche, though :,D
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
