While accompanying her patients as a home care worker, Sandrine realised that they were missing some of life’s lessons.
Her reflection was as follows: if we learnt to know ourselves, to know how we function, wouldn’t we cope more smoothly with the difficult moments in life?
She therefore took a university degree in positive psychology, a training that led her to take an interest in children and their schooling, in their emotional intelligence.
Sandrine is currently training to become a psycho-pedagogue. She is convinced that there is no single school model, but rather that there are different ways of learning depending on the individual. For her, the child must be at the centre of his or her schooling. A fulfilled child will be an accomplished adult. 
Her hobbies: reading, learning, meditating in nature, taking long walks, music.
