My Story

Mother of two daughters, aged 8 and 3, who are students at Great Hope Montessori, I moved to Morges in the summer of 2020.


After a career abroad in humanitarian aid and as director of an Alliance Française, I trained as a Montessori AMI 6-12 educator. With 3 Masters degrees, in Political Science, History, and Humanitarian Project Management, I take the opportunity to pass on my experience and skills to my students.


Before becoming Director and Educator for the 6-12 class at Great Hope Montessori, I had the opportunity to teach classes of both 9-12 year olds and 6-12 year olds in Paris. 


Happy to be able to offer a quality of life surrounded by nature and space to live, I decided to pursue my commitment to Great Hope Montessori, which places the child’s interests and well-being at the heart of its concerns. Also trained in yoga for children aged 3-16 and in the MISP method (Massage in School Programme), I bring these additional tools into the classroom, enabling children to refocus on themselves and to be available to themselves and then to others. Self-care and empathy are part of our classroom culture. 


As a humanitarian, a guide, and a mother, I am committed to bringing to life this pedagogy, which embodies the values of solidarity, mutual aid, collaboration, surpassing oneself, perseverance, harmony and peace. Montessori is also a pedagogy that can be experienced at home. Thanks to the absence of grades and the trust of parents, we can support children through effective co-education. 


I would say that what drives me is to guide children in discovering the world with passion. It’s through observation, discovery and knowledge that we learn to love and project our world. As far as I’m concerned, the work I do every day in the classroom is just one more step towards building a peaceful world with a respect for nature.


I continue to remain involved internationally with the Mamadou & Bineta Association, bringing Montessori teaching methods to the most vulnerable children.
