Rita

Montessori AMI French teacher
Director of school

Originally from Geneva, Rita certified 3-6 AMI Montessori teacher. She has gained multiple teaching experiences with the DIP as well as in other Montessori schools.

After starting her career in the health sector as a medical radiology technician, the arrival of her first child sparked a deep desire in her to (re)focus on what is most essential:education. That's when she decided to retrain and become a Montessori teacher.

For Rita, the Montessori pedagogy is more than just an educational system: it represents a philosophy of life. As a teacher, she observes and guides the child towards their personal development, offering individualized learning, given with love and care.

Rita is passionate, smiling, and creative. Her dedication to teaching has allowed her students to assemble words and read from the age of 3, testing to her ability to observe and meet the needs of her students.

Beyond her work, Rita enjoys cycling, playing badminton, and indulging in art. She is also the mother of two children.

 

Guided by transparency, nourished by love, inspired by Montessori pedagogy, and in harmony with nature - these are the priorities and values that characterize her.
