Directly after his Montessori training he taught upper primary in New Zealand, before moving to a lower primary class in the Hong Kong International Montessori School. Since 2015 he is working in the 6 to 12 classroom as the lead teacher.
Growing up in Chamonix as a child, I feel grateful to be back in the community! I was drawn back to the Montessori philosophy after a few years in marketing management and had the urge to work alongside children. From my early years, helping and guiding others has always been part of my values.
Having a solid knowledge of the approach as an AMI trained educator, I have nourished my teaching with practices such as yoga, which I have taught to young ones as to elders, non-violent communication and nature inspired teachings.
She is an AMI trained educator and works with Mahé as an assistant in the 3-6 classroom.
