1. When did you work at the International School of Geneva and what was/were your role(s)?
From 1972 to 2010 I was a teacher of Junior Science and Chemistry, Head of Chemistry, and then Head of Science, at different times.

2. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I still live in the Nyon region. Initially on retirement I was able to maintain contact with students by tutoring IGCSE and IB chemistry, including students from LGB, ISL and CDL. In addition to enjoying the chance to travel outside school holidays I have been able to spend more time with family and friends as well as using my experimental skills in the kitchen and in the garden. (Some experiments have been more successful than others!)

3. What are your strongest memories of working at Ecolint?
The friendliness and strong sense of community amongst the students and staff. Also the opportunity to be with people from different countries and cultures.

4. To what extent do you like to keep in touch with former students and colleagues?
Many former La Chât colleagues keep in touch via the ‘La Chât Retirees Newsletter’ which is sent out monthly. In addition, those of us who live in the area try to meet up for lunch twice a year. For me the Kermesse and World Reunions are ideal and very enjoyable ways to meet up with past students. The alumni website is also a good forum.
