Since August,2003 – next school year will be my 20th

Share something we do not expect to hear from you?

I hope you will not hear from me a complaint…with the time I have been learning that the essential skill in my life is to be able to focus on seeing the positive side in everything, and always.

What do you love most about your job?

I love my students, my subject, my working environment…In general for the profession: it is the fact that I have been constantly learning while teaching and communicating with the students. For AAS in particular, I love the dynamic, the constant wind of change, the diversity, the professional development, my colleagues, I have always felt there is a new thing to be learned, to be created, to be presented, etc.

Someone who gets paid to travel the world, to take pictures and tells stories…and writes novels for a hobby.

What is the most important thing one has to learn at school?

How to think and how to learn. Independently and critically. And to love the learning itself.

What would you say to your 13 year old self?

Hey, if you sit down and learn how to play the piano, or this guitare, or at least that violin, you will be blessed to spread happiness for the rest of your life!

Please recommend a book to read

The Little Prince” by Exupery. ( In my opinion, Everyone should read one book a week)
