What people say about me
Fanny is a dedicated, enthusiastic teacher. She really pushed me to my full potential ensuring I was not only prepared with all resources for the exam, but also taught me about the French culture beyond the curriculum. I really enjoyed being her student, because she was always well prepared, and made the classroom a joyful environment. — Laura Schönherr (ex student – Stonehill International School)
Fanny is an amazing educator whether working with kids or adults. She has a unique ability to have both the big-picture perspective on what you need to know and why, as well as the depth of knowledge to answer the small detail questions. Whether you want to be inspired by what it means to be an innovative educator or if you need to map your curriculum into G Suite, you couldn’t do better than Fanny. — Simon Helton (ISTE Director of Community Engagement)
Fanny is an enthusiastic and committed educator. She is a risk-taker, not afraid to disrupt people in their comfort zone, ask questions and offer opportunities to help them grow. Whether leading coaching sessions, running a webinar, making tutorial videos or teaching French the Silent Way, she is organised, trustworthy and inspirational. Beyond implementing ideas to integrate technology into the learning, Fanny is a mediator of thinking, she believes each educator and learner can self-direct his/her own learning. Through her leadership, new doors opened up for my professional development, I personally saw new beginnings and became an EdTech Mentor and a member of the school’s coaching team. You are looking at someone with an amazing set of skills, a holonomous educator who acts both independently and interdependently, she is aware of herself as well as of the impact she can make on the whole. — Teresa Rodriguez-B (ex colleague – Mercedes-Benz International School)
Fanny’s strength during the workshop was her ability to reflect after each session and adapt the content to her audience in order to meet their needs. She is passionate about learning, creative in her approach and committed to make others successful. — Francois Bourcier (attended an online course on the Silent Way and invited Fanny to lead a workshop at his school as at the time: Canadian International School of Hong Kong).
Ms. Fanny is a very vibrant, knowledgeable and enterprising teacher. Her strength is her deep domain knowledge and positivity. She has an impeccable vibe to connect with students in her own magic way and elicit the best out of each student. Her teaching style stands out from the norm and is very effective. She is a very creative, dedicated, honest and hardworking teacher who takes her profession as her religion, capable of performing the most difficult of tasks adeptly and contributing to the educational institution greatly. My son who was also her student has always loved her classes and has benefited a lot. — Dr Rajni Chattaraj (Parent when Fanny was teaching and leading the Tech integration at Mercedes-Benz International School).
I would recommend Ms. Fanny because she puts a lot of effort into the work that she does. Also, when teaching, she has a good sense of humor. She is very dedicated to what she is doing and tries to bring in creativity. — Aditya Chattaraj (Student – PYP French when Fanny was teaching at Mercedes-Benz International School).
She is great with kids and inspiring them to be creative with technology. Her workshops are something that kids enjoy a lot and learn at the same time. She is highly organised, dependable and proactive. She was great at organising the maker morning program at Mercedes-Benz International School. — Amruta Jain (Parent when Fanny was teaching and leading the Tech integration at Mercedes-Benz International School).
Ms. Fanny was an amazing teacher. Being someone who spoke French fluently when I was younger, most French classes I took didn’t help me much, since I already knew what I was learning. Ms. Fanny had creative approaches to help us learn in a way that was not only effective, but also fun. She also taught me ways of remembering previous grammar I had learned, which helped me tremendously. I truly miss having Ms. Fanny teach me, because she taught us so much, along with being incredibly nice. — Siya (Student – MYP French when Fanny was teaching at Stonehill International School).
The experiences that I had in your classroom were amazing. They have helped me phenomenally throughout the rest of my French classes. Thanks to you I liked the subject from the first few classes even if it didn’t seem like that at times . In your classroom I felt like the connection between the teacher and the student was different than I had ever had before. In most of my other classes the teachers and the students didn’t have a strong relationship making it harder for the teacher to pass on the passion they had for that subject. In your class we had a good connection. Your passion for the subject made us have passion for it. The activities and the games we played to help us learn made the class one to look forward to. Even though French was by far my strong suit, you still managed to get me to keep going when it got especially hard and when I lost any hope I had to start off with. I feel that being in your class made an impact on me that would stay with me for the rest of my French learning.I can understand almost everything in French ignoring some troubles that I have here and there when people talk exceptionally fast. My grades have been going up this last year but even though I’m dropping, I hope you know that you left an imprint on me that going to stay with me for the rest of my life. Really, all I have to say is: thank you. – Moon (Student – MYP French when Fanny was teaching at Stonehill International School).
If there is one thing I learnt from this class is that even learning a new language can be fun provided you have the right tools and the right teacher to help you. Ms. Fanny has somehow managed to incorporate both creativity and fun into her teaching style and it is that characteristic is what I believe made her stand out from my other teachers. This class was very different than my other classes because it was highly visual. Visual learning not only helped me learn a lot at a quick rate but also did help me retain whatever I learnt. Another aspect that was different in this class was the teaching methods were more digital and the use of internet tools made the class a lot more interesting. I can strongly say that it is because of these unique techniques I am now able to remember almost everything I learnt in this class. Merci beaucoup. – Abhishek (Student – DP French when Fanny was teaching at Stonehill International School).
