Jean-François joined Mosaic in 2022, bringing with him a deep understanding of bilingualism, which will enable the school to continue developing its pioneering educational program.

He holds a master's degree in educational science from the Université Paris-Est Créteil (UPEC) and has over twenty years' experience in teaching. His career began in the Nord-Isère region where he quickly embraced the values of USEP, the federation for school sport for public, primary school pupils. He transformed the organisation of the town's schools to enable young people from disadvantaged neighbourhoods to take part in sport and cultural activities two or three times a week.<br /> Jean-François took up his first international position in 2007 as deputy principal and educational coordinator at the Franco-American school in Rhode Island, USA. Over the next 16 years, he held positions of responsibility at other international schools in the USA, Jeddah and now Switzerland.<br /> As Director General of Mosaic, a bilingual and multicultural school in Geneva, Jean-François passionately believes in the benefits of a bilingual education. His pedagogical approach is based on making every learner a lifelong learner, through the acquisition of soft skills such as: creativity, resilience, self-evaluation and a collaborative approach.<br /> As a former rugby player, Jean-François attends as many international matches as he can in his spare time and is a fervent supporter of the French national team. He is also a black belt in judo and regularly practices this sport and shares his passion with Mosaic’s students.
