Paris year for mom,14 yr.old son & dog

I'm a high school French teacher with a 14 yr. old. son.  I was widowed 3 1/2 yrs. ago.  I plan to take my African American son and our beloved golden retriever to Paris, France to earn my MA degree from Middlebury College.  I hope to  introduce my son to a wider world of cultures, ethnicities, art and languages.  The money will help pay for my tuition and our housing expenses.  My son will attend public school.
