I am an invitational educator and an innovator who is always looking for the next challenge!
I am from France but I currently live in Bulgaria. I work as the Director of Learning & Curriculum at the Anglo-American School of Sofia.
I lived in India for 8 years where I work as a French Language Acquisition Teacher and later as a PK-12 EdTech Coach.
I graduated as a student in ethno-ecology and studied people-tiger conflict in the Corbett Tiger Reserve and later about the relationships between the Bhotiya community and their environment in the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve. While studying ethno-ecology, I enrolled in an online Master course on French Foreign Language Teaching Pedagogy. I started teaching English as a Second Language in France and then moved to India to teach French in international schools. I started using “Moodle” and my interest slowly grew towards blended learning. I became the “Tech-Savvy” colleague who helped others with technical glitches and soon started to read more about technology integration. It was only when I became a “Google Certified Teacher” that I really entered the EdTech sphere. I became a Google Certified Educator/Trainer, a Common Sense Education EdTech Mentor/Ambassador/Digital Citizenship Educator, a Seesaw Ambassador and a BrainPOP Educator. These titles helped me get recognized and feel valued and opened up multiple networks of like-minded people with whom I often collaborate. From a tool-centered approach, I slowly developed an understanding of the impact and purpose of EdTech which I share on my website and blog here.
I am an author (find out more about the book I have written with Caitlin McLemore: Stretch Yourself) and an active contributor to several online forums.
I have co-developed (with Richard Anderson) a system of “Curriculum Mapping with G Suite” and share my open-source 100% free idea. [click here to join us].
I am strongly involved with ISTE, in particular with the EdTech Coaches PLN and Young Educator Network. I became a community champion and a reviewer. I won the ISTE 2016 EdTech Coach PLN award and one of the 2016 Emerging Leader award.
