    Séverine Paris

    Educator and Headmaster


    I was born in Annecy on April, 28th 1979. I grew up and lived in this beautiful area surrounded by the Lake and the mountains. I always wanted to work with children and I found the pedagogy of Maria Montessori fascinating. Everything that I could read in her books seemed obvious and natural to me.  I graduated as a child educator (aged 3 to 6) in 2005 from the Superior Maria Montessori Institute of Paris. Then, I worked in different Montessori schools in Switzerland until 2013. Today, I have realized my dream. I opened a Montessori school in Sevrier, on the ground floor of my own house, in order to give the children a caring and family framework. I am the headmaster and French-speaking educator.

    Educator (currently on parental leave)


    I spent my childhood near Paris and at the age of nine, my family and I moved to Haute-Savoie. I immediately had a crush for the amazing area of Annecy. I did a degree in Sciences of Languages at the University of Lyon II and I had my Master in primary school teaching in 2012. Then, I spent two years in a Secondary school in Birmingham (UK) as a French assistant. After this interesting experience, I came back in France and took the decision to become a Montessori teacher. I realized that working in a ‘traditional school ‘ was not my cup of tea. I started my training course at the Superior Maria Montessori Institute of Paris in july 2015 and I became the English language educator at ‘Fantine’  on September 2015. If everything is alright, I will be graduated as a child educator (aged 3 to 6) on august. I really love my job because I can combine my two passions : English language and teaching to young children.

      "Originally from Luxembourg, I have always dreamed of living in the mountains. I came to Annecy in 2004 to do a Bts in Nature Animation. Passionate about nature, I obtained a Masters in Ecology before working as a guardian in the Vanoise National Park. Today I am a mother of two children and working with small children seems obvious to me. I am happy to be able to support children on a daily basis in their development and their discovery of the surrounding world. To be able to combine the development of children and their sensitivity to nature is a great achievement for me"
