    Educator and Headmaster


    I was born in Annecy on April, 28th 1979. I grew up and lived in this beautiful area surrounded by the Lake and the mountains. I always wanted to work with children and I found the pedagogy of Maria Montessori fascinating. Everything that I could read in her books seemed obvious and natural to me.  I graduated as a child educator (aged 3 to 6) in 2005 from the Superior Maria Montessori Institute of Paris. Then, I worked in different Montessori schools in Switzerland until 2013. Today, I have realized my dream. I opened a Montessori school in Sevrier, on the ground floor of my own house, in order to give the children a caring and family framework. I am the headmaster and French-speaking educator.

    I spent my childhood near Paris and at the age of nine, my family and I moved to Haute-Savoie. I immediately had a crush for the amazing area of Annecy. I did a degree in Sciences of Languages at the University of Lyon II and I had my Master in primary school teaching in 2012. Then, I spent two years in a Secondary school in Birmingham (UK) as a French assistant. After this interesting experience, I came back in France and took the decision to become a Montessori teacher. I realized that working in a ‘traditional school ‘ was not my cup of tea. I started my training course at the Superior Maria Montessori Institute of Paris in july 2015 and I became the English language educator at ‘Fantine’  on September 2015. If everything is alright, I will be graduated as a child educator (aged 3 to 6) on august. I really love my job because I can combine my two passions : English language and teaching to young children.

    "I was born in Charente-Maritime on July 1st, 1984. At the age of 19, I went to live in Chamonix where I had a seasonal activity for 12 years.With free time each autumn, I traveled in different countries in Asia and Africa bringing clothes and school materials that I distributed in schools In 2008, I carried out a training course on the pedagogy of Maria Montessori concerning children from 3 to 6 years old. Over the years, it seemed obvious to me to work with children, so I followed the formation of the CAP Petite Enfance at the Greta d'Annecy, where I join the team of "Fantine" in September 2016. "
