My name is Béatrice Texier and I am a mother of four grown children. I was born in Paris where I studied science and obtained a PhD in Immunology at the Institut Pasteur. I then made the choice to become a teacher for young children. First, I worked in France and then joined Collège Champittet in 2011. I teach in 4th grade. It's a dream job. Every morning, I look forward to seeing the children, their smiles and their spontaneity. My daily challenge is to help them learn and grow and to create appropriate learning situations to stimulate their motivation, interest and curiosity. I like the professional setting that Collège Champittet offers me. I appreciate the family atmosphere of the school, the team spirit of all the staff and the special attention given to each child by all.
