Enfants d’Azur: Tell us a little about your background and what led you to become an educationalist. Amanda: My first home was England before moving to France in the 1980’s where I developed a method for teaching English to young children within the French National Education system. I also discovered a passion for training teachers during this time. Branching out to the international sector, I taught for 14 years at an international school in Nice before moving into a leadership role. More recently, I have enjoyed 8 years working overseas as principal and director of teaching and learning in Morocco and India. The opportunity to join ICS Côte d’Azur coincided perfectly with my readiness to return to Europe.
