Praxède Pictet

English Guide
3 to 6 Class

Growing up in Burkina Faso, Cambodia, and Thailand, Praxède’s passion for working with children with special needs ignited at a young age. She later delved into studies and training at a center specializing in children on the autism spectrum.

Curious about alternatives to traditional teaching methods, Praxède explored ways to support children not only academically but also socially and emotionally. In her quest for a system tailored to each child’s unique needs, she discovered the Montessori pedagogy, a philosophy that resonated deeply with her. She underwent training and internships, and now, as a full-time English Montessori teacher, she applies these principles in her classroom.

Complementing her teaching role, Praxède holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology, enriching her understanding of the diverse needs of her students.
