The 5-11 years classroom

 

Caroline LOUSTALOT: French-speaking educator for 5 to 11 years old children

My name is Caroline Loustalot, I worked for 14 years in day care assistant with
children from 3 to 12 years old. I discovered the Montessori pedagogy 7 years ago. I first trained in Dax. These past three years, I have completed my Montessori training for children aged 3 to 12 with the CFRP Montessori organization in Lyon. During this training, I also studied non-violent communication, psychology and child development. I worked for 5 years in a 3 to 6 Montessori class, and this past year, I have been practicing in a Montessori-inspired class for children from CP to CE2. Education is my passion! I really care about supporting children in their development, and it give me much pleasure to see them blossom.

 

Charlotte LAW: English-speaking educator for 5 to 11 years old children

Hello, my name’s Charlotte Law and I’m a qualified English teacher. Originally from Yorkshire, I moved to France at the age of 9 and was soon fully bilingual. Ever since, I’ve believed that, for any child, Immersion is the best approach to learning a foreign language.

At University, I specialised in Arts and Museum Education which taught me how all children enjoy critical and exploratory thinking through creativity.

Last year, I started teaching English at a language school in Bordeaux and ran Montessori workshops for young learners, aged 6 to 11 years. The Montessori method was new to me and yet I was instantly convinced by the way it enables children to cultivate positive values and attitudes and construct knowledge at their own pace.

After spending Summer 2022 teaching English through Drama at a primary school in Vietnam, I’ll be returning to France to join Caroline in teaching the 6-12 years. I’m eager to start and intend to train with AMI simultaneously. I look forward to meeting you all very soon!
