When I participated in the program, the teachers at my school in Tonnerre appreciated the effort and preparation that I put into my lessons, and the students liked them because I tried to make them both practical and fun. I have fond memories of lively conversations with teachers in the "salle des profs" and of students introducing me to their families when I ran into them at the market. I felt like a member of the community, and it was hard to leave when it was time for me to come back to the U.S.
