About Marine, Sandy and Hélène

Hélène Montessori Gaillac

Hélène Ballande, mother of two children who went to Montessori schools.

I first worked as an international lawyer (France / United States) and spent about a decade abroad.

I was trained in Montessori pedagogy with Valérie Maestre (Growing up with Montessori, Albi) when I arrived in the Tarn in 2012. I completed a traineeship at the Montessori school in Albi in 2012-13 and was in charge of the 3-6 years old class from January to July 2015 replacing the maternity leave educator.

In 2014, I took the training on the Grammar of emotions of the EIREM Institute (Isabelle Filliozat). I practice yoga and meditation that I will enjoy sharing with children.

Marine
Après des études universitaires en espagnol, en sciences de l’éducation et en enseignement du premier degré, j’ai travaillé deux ans en tant que professeur des écoles dans l’académie de Versailles. Depuis que j'ai découvert l'œuvre de Maria Montessori en troisième année de licence, je n'ai jamais cessé de m'y intéresser. J'ai donc décidé de me former en tant qu'assistante Montessori pour les 3-6 ans à Lisbonne avec Guadalupe Borbolla puis de travailler un an comme assistante en trinôme avec deux éducatrices à l'école Montessori Internationale Beautiful Minds de Courbevoie. L'envie de me perfectionner et de devenir éducatrice m'est venue tout naturellement, ce que j'ai pu concrétiser à l'Institut Supérieur Maria Montessori de Lyon auprès d'Isabelle Séchaud.
