1. When did you work at the International School of Geneva and what was/were your role(s)?
I was at La Châtaigneraie from September 1990 to December 2003, where I was Head of Secondary Physical Education as well as teaching GCSE Dance and Theory of Knowledge.

2. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I lecture in Human Movement Studies (Health and Physical Education), and Creative Arts at Charles Sturt University in Albury, New South Wales, Australia. I am also currently completing my PhD there. I was the lead PE consultant for Cambridge International Examinations for several years, working on education projects in Kazakhstan, Egypt and Mongolia.

3. What are your strongest memories of working at Ecolint?
Fieldweeks to Berlin and ski days, as well as all the wonderful dance lessons that I enjoyed teaching with my GCSE Dance students. Working in an international environment and teaching in both French and English. Encouraging children to sledge down the vineyards on bin bags when it snowed, crash mat relays in the sports hall, sports days, staff socials, developing yoga, aerobic and hip hop dance in the PE programme. And last but not least, organising all those gym/dance shows for parents and students!

4. To what extent do you like to keep in touch with former students and colleagues?
I have several ex students and staff keep in touch with me via Facebook and e-mail.
