Milaure Muteba

FLE: 3 year Olds / PS - Lead Teacher

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.

Clarisse Materanya

FLE: 2 year olds / TPS 1 - Lead Teacher

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.
