Ms. Florence Nicolaï
School(s): Primary School
Department(s): French Faculty
Title(s): Third Grade Teacher

Florence Nicolaï comes from Bourg-en-Bresse in France. After earning a degree from the Lyon 2 University in Lyon, she obtained her teaching certificate from the Institut Universitaire de Formation des Maîtres in Bourg-en-Bresse. She then taught second and third grades for ten years in Gex, on the Swiss border near Geneva, as well as third grade for a year in Villars-les-Dombes, near Lyon.

While working in Gex, she greatly enjoyed the multicultural environment. The city’s proximity to Geneva, the CERN and United Nations offices meant that people from many different nationalities lived in the area. She is looking forward to joining a similarly diverse community at the French International School of Philadelphia.

In her spare time, Ms. Nicolaï enjoys reading, going to the opera and the theater and traveling.
