Originally from Genoa, Italy, I primarily grew up in London. Being raised in a bicultural family played a fundamental role in developing my self-identity, personal and professional values, and insight into the unique experiences of multicultural children. Living in Vietnam for seven years has extended my understanding and perspectives, leading me to begin a PGCE programme with a focus on differentiation. My philosophy as an educator centres around supporting and encouraging children’s inherent qualities to empower a lifelong engagement with learning. I am excited to join the environment that La Petite Ecole has cultivated as a member of the staff and community.
