Ms. Mathilde Guignard is a French citizen and she will be teaching French to our stu-dents. She has a PGCE from the University of Cumbria, England and a Master degree in French as a Foreign language from University of Nanterre and a Master in Sciences of Education from University Lumière Lyon as well as different trainings. Ms. Mathilde has already worked in Albania before. She taught at University of Languages and at the Alliance Française of Shkodra where she worked with children and she is glad and enthusiastic to have the chance to carry on teaching in this country. This year, while she was teaching in Morocco, she was appointed to develop and teach Preschool classes, which gave her the opportunity to create materials. She also taught children and teenagers using methods and offering activities of her own to fit the needs of the children. She likesto focus her work in the four skills – speaking, writing, listening and reading – and plan ahead to ensure a progression. Ms. Mathilde is very pleased to be part of the AIS team and she is looking forward to meeting our wonderful students and professional staff.
