Born and brought up in France to a French mother and an English father, I studied English at the University of Bordeaux then the University of Versailles while, at the same time, teaching English to adults and teenagers. During my studies, I took a gap year to work as a French teaching assistant in two secondary schools in Reading. I enjoyed sharing my passion for the French language and culture with young people so much that I decided to live in England and become a French teacher. Two years later, after completing my master’s degree in English Literature and History, I enrolled at the University of Oxford, where I completed my teacher’s training. I then worked for 4 years in a secondary school in Bracknell as a French and Spanish teacher.
Roles at school
I am delighted to be joining Longacre as a French teacher and a Form V tutor, alongside the wonderful Mrs. Manson. I cannot wait to share my enthusiasm for languages and French culture with the young pupils of Longacre in my lessons and in my French Club! I will also be teaching Games and PE, which will undoubtedly bring back fond memories of my time as a Secondary School PE Prefect.
Away from the classroom
When I am not teaching, I enjoy cooking, reading, travelling, and spending time with my family and friends. Whenever I get the chance, I also like to take cultural trips to London to watch plays and explore art museums.
