Elementary School in Rural France (Movie Recommendation)

To Be and To Have

Last night I watched one of my favorite movies, Être et avoir (To Be and To Have). This documentary takes place in a one room elementary school in the heart of rural Auvergne, France where a single teacher (Mr. Lopez) instructs children from ages 4 to 10 how to read, how to multiply, how to make crepes, how to share and find joy in nature and company.

Whether it is the extra scene where little Marie recites a poem about the moon or the episodes when Jojo sticks a pencil up his nose or tries with all his might to figure out the copy machine, this movie reminds us what a joy it is to work with children, plus it brings back a few memories of being in elementary school to boot.

Learn more about the film and see more photos like the one above here.
