I am from the Democratic Republic of Congo. I am a Medical doctor; I obtained my bachelor degree in 2015 to the Protestant University of Congo. The children are my passion and my greatest dream is to become a pediatrician. I am married to a wonderful man and we are both parents of an adorable little girl. My experience as a young mother has allowed me to get all the beneficial knowledge in the education of a child such as ability to listen, communication, anticipation, sense of responsibility, organization and creativity (artistic and musical). I always love to work with children and I give my best to bring attention and security to them. It has been two years and a half since I joined my husband to the USA. I started working at l’Ecole as an assistant teacher first, then as a teacher, having been trained by a very talented teacher from France. I still like to learn from the other French teachers around me that have much experience and are always happy to help. I have a background in pediatric psychology that gives me another advantage to care for the children. I am young, full of energy and good ideas, naturally a very patient person, nice and especially attentive. I currently teach French in the 3 years old classroom at l’Ecole and it is really a pleasure to contribute to the instruction and the education of those children.
My name is Clarisse Materanya. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, I emigrated to the US in 2010, and became a US citizen in 2015. I am a happily married woman with four beautiful children the last two of whom are fraternal twins. I came to the US with a bachelor’s degree in Economics, with a concentration in financial management from the University of Kinshasa. Then, I obtained a Master’s degree in Accounting from Strayer University Raleigh/US. Since my husband worked overseas, I was a dedicated mother to my four children until the last ones reached the age of four. This gave me a real opportunity to re-discover myself and to embrace that inner passion inside of me; the desire for taking those little angels through the premises of human life as a childhood educator with assurance and confidence. My French native background has offered me an incredible plus, and joining “L’école,” the French School of North Carolina, has given me a real opportunity to share my passion as well as to live it day-after-day as a teacher assistant, and since 2020 as an accountant too.
Hello, my name is Tiffany. I have 2 daughters, 9 and 7. I arrived in Raleigh in 2019. We come from Paris, France. I seized the opportunity of our move to the USA to improve my teaching skills.
I started teaching FLE (French as a Foreign Language) at L’école, in 2019, then I took over the CE2 ( 3rd grade) and CM2 ( 5th Grade) afterschool classes. In 2021-22, I taught the 4 year olds/ Pre-K class with 10 students.
Teaching is a real vocation for me! I love teaching at L’école and I am enjoying my job and the students tremendously. I particularly like teaching art, theater, sciences, cooking and sports. I am patient, calm and always ready to embark on a new project. Positive education and respect for the child’s development are essential for me.
In September 2022, I will be teaching, art, theater, science, and IT to the primary students.
Hello, my name is Anne-Cécile. I have 4 children, 2 boys and 2 girls: 11, 9, 7 and 1. We arrived in Raleigh in 2019, following my husband’s international job assignment.
I have been a primary school teacher for 14 years. I have been lucky to have the opportunity to teach both preschool and primary school levels in France and in Raleigh.
I obtained a BA in Education Science in 2005, and, in 2008, I passed my “Professeur des Ecoles” teaching degree (a Master in Education coupling theoretical and practical training for primary school teachers) at the I.S.F.P. (Institut Supérieur de Formation des Professeurs) in Grenoble, France.
I was recruited by L’école in 2019, and It is a pleasure for me to teach here. At L’école, we offer high quality learning to all our students based on differentiated instruction, listening, oral and written production, personalized attention to each student, and structured activities. Our students, learn how to write in cursive in Kindergarten, and are able to read and write in both English and French at a faster pace than is normally expected. We expect high quality presentations and neat notebooks. We take each students at their level when they come to us, and our goal is to bring the students as far as they can.
