French IS Educator

email: kdescormes@ischs.net

Certified History-Geography teacher of the French National Education, I have been practicing this profession for over 18 years. Passionate about Art and History, I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in history and a Master’s degree in art history from the University of Lyon II. Always in love with Italy, I had the opportunity to participate to an Erasmus exchange in this country and lived there for 6 years. This foreign experience allowed me to start my educational career by teaching History-Geography in Italian in Valence (France). Ten years later, I moved to Paris to teach at a local High School and I truly enjoyed living five years in this beautiful city. I moved to Miami in 2017 and, since then, I have been teaching History-Geography for the French IS program. At ISCHS, I was able to discover the American educational system that my students do alongside the French IS program. What most impressed me about the American system is the self-esteem and self-confidence taught to the students. Teaching in a school with different IS programs is a very enriching experience. The bonus is that my “Frenchies” are amazing!
