I graduated from the Ecole Supérieure des Arts Appliqués in Paris and started my professional career as a graphic designer. During this brief experience, I was given the opportunity to lead a 6 month project with children, and their enthusiasm made me realise that I wanted to teach. I obtained the CERPE (French teaching qualification) in 2002. After 2 years in France I moved to the French School of Sofia, and then to the French School of Warsaw in 2006. I met my partner in Poland and have been here for almost 10 years now. I gained teaching experience in various international schools, following bilingual or French curriculums, as well as providing art and drama classes in French. I joined The British School in April 2015, especially motivated by the IB Diploma programme.
I like travelling and especially enjoy long-distance hiking in the mountains. The highest peak I have reached is Pico Espejo in Venezuela, but the place I always go back to is the French Pyrenees, where my father is from. Reading is an other way which makes me feel good, for me it is an everyday need. As a French person, my weird specificity is that I hate cheese… yes… any kind.
Highest Quality Learning
In my subject ‘Highest Quality Learning’ means to create a welcoming environment in order to make every student feel good and confident with French. It also means to encourage active discussions, exposing and comparing ideas and opinions: this makes the academic work much easier. Confidence and creativity whilst talking, as well as regular work, are for me the keys to reach the best of our possibilities in any foreign language.
