HEAD OF LANGUAGES

My Motto: “L’éducation donne le désir de s’instruire. C’est une assurance pour la vie et un passeport pour l’éternité” 

Qualifications:

  • PHD in Medieval French Literature
  • Trilinguist: French, German and English
  • 25 years of experience in the education sector

Experiences:

I grew up and studied in Valais, Lausanne and Geneva before moving to Zurich. After a bachelor in political sciences and a master diploma in International relations, I caught up with the family tradition and started a teaching career. I obtained a master in French language and literature, and kept going with a PHD in medieval French literature and the teaching diploma for higher education. Apart from teaching French as additional language at high school for twenty-five years, I have also worked as a translator and in the hospitality and tourism services, in Switzerland and in Australia, where I settled down for almost two years. I love reading and travelling, and of course spending time with my two children, who are now adults.
