A Team Ready to Inspire

EFGB proudly hires and manages fully-certified, highly qualified faculty and staff. Beyond complying with the mission and values ​​of our school, teachers must possess the necessary teaching skills to implement our curriculum and run our classes.
All of our teachers and assistants undergo mandatory training required by the State of Massachusetts. Each class has qualified teachers certified by Early Education and Care (EEC). Strict rules on safety, skill development requirements, and ongoing professional development are required for all staff members throughout the year.

All of our teachers are French native speaker from all over the world, and many are graduates of the French National Education system. Some of our teachers are graduated from American colleges and come with years of experience teaching in local schools. As educators, we are entrusted with the success and the well-being of the students. EFGB hires staff by following a careful recruitment and hiring process.

Each member of our staff has the ability to apply the French National Education standards while meeting the safety standards and requirements of the American educational system.

I believe in taking a child-centered approach to teaching and thinking of the whole child when teaching. Imparting knowledge is wonderful, it is equally important that we raise empathetic children with strong values.

I strongly believe in active learning, which engages students as active participants in their learning during class. They build their own understanding and their knowledge by doing more than listening, by doing things themselves. They must discuss, be engaged in solving problems. According to me, teachers need to motivate children to learn and help them be positive and empathic. They should propose a variety of activities, surprise their students while creating a reassuring and familiar framework for them.
