I attended the University of Charles-de-Gaulle in Lille, France, where I studied Language, Literature and Civilisation, after first obtaining my Baccalaureate in Science. I also have a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of Leicester in Secondary Foreign Languages. Prior to my arrival at BISH, I taught for ten years in Northamptonshire, England where, in addition to my work as a teacher, I eventually held the position of Head of French and also worked as a mentor with the University of Leicester to train new teachers starting on the PGCE course as well as teacher trainees enrolled in the Graduate Teacher Programme. In 2011, I came to the United States and joined BISH. My ten years with the school have been a wonderful experience. I truly enjoy helping children to learn the language and communication skills they will need in this increasingly interconnected, multicultural and multilingual world.
I’m originally from Saint Omer, a small town in the north of France. I’ve always wanted to expand my horizons by traveling and experiencing different cultures. Initially, I traveled across Europe and to various parts of the U.K. More recently, I visited the Bahamas, Costa Rica, Argentina, Mexico, and Canada. I enjoy hiking and being physically active, and I recently discovered the joy of indoor rock climbing. Just this past April, I decided to take it outdoors and to climb at Red Rock Canyon in Nevada. It was incredibly beautiful and I loved my time there! When I am at home, I like to relax, spend time with my cats, and to do some gardening. I also have a passion for the arts, and I particularly enjoy music and pottery.
