The students! I am driven by our mission and by my passion to help form and guide young people. That is a real driving force for me.
What is the most challenging part of your role?
In today’s technological world, it is crucial to remember that we are human beings and that we need to exchange and discuss issues face to face.
What gives you the most personal satisfaction?
Being in contact with the students and seeing them bloom and flourish thanks to all the input of everyone in the Brillantmont team.
What makes Brillantmont so special?
The fact that we have such a strong sense of community here at Brillantmont International School. Whether it be a new teacher arriving, or a student, I am always impressed by how quickly they immerse themselves in the spirit of Brillantmont and quickly begin to feel a real sense of belonging.
