Bonjour! I am originally from Alsace, France and have lived in many different countries over the past decade before moving to the UAE three years ago. After working in the corporate world for 15 years organizing educational conferences, I discovered a passion for education, spurring me to retrain and achieve a post-graduate certificate in education (PGCE) from the University of Nottingham. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and travelling as well as continuing to learn about new cultures and languages. I strongly believe that the acquisition of additional languages encourages personal growth and facilitates the global outlook required to thrive in the 21st century.
