After a master’s degree in Arts and Cultural Industries, Pauline participated in the Comenius project for one year as an assistant in a primary school in Manchester. The Comenius project aims to promote cooperation between schools in the European framework, to develop openness and tolerance.
She completed a PGCE (Post Graduate Certificate of Education, equivalent to the French CAPES) at the University of Manchester in order to become a teacher of French as a foreign language. In 2012, she obtained a position as a French teacher in a middle school in south-east London. There she learned to plan and deliver creative, transdisciplinary, dynamic and engaging courses using a wide range of activities, including interactive whiteboards. In addition to teaching foreign languages, she has also taught English grammar and math support to students with learning difficulties. After 3 years, she was promoted to Head of the French Department. She managed a small department and worked closely with the teaching team. In the course of her duties, she has helped to train and guide trainee teachers.
Between February and April 2018, back in France, she has worked as a replacement teacher at the International School of Paris.
While researching different educational structures in Paris, she discovered the Lab School project which challenged her as much on its innovative aspect as on its bilingual aspect. She is working as full time anglophone teacher at the Paris Lab School since April 2018.
