This week, we are delighted to learn more about Audrey Poirette, celebrating her 10th Anniversary at the FAA.
Audrey has been experimenting a lot of “firsts” at the FAA. Therefore it is natural that she is the first interview of the blog.
Audrey has moved from Toulouse in August 2009 to join our starting school. She was opening the first 1st grade class in our Bergen County location. She was our first certified teacher from the French Education Ministry. She brought her experience and expertise to our growing curriculum. She taught not only 1st grade but also Kindergarten, Second and Third Grades. Then, she became a coordinator and took the leadership of Jersey City campus in 2014.
Her knowledge, teaching style, poise and smile have been a great asset since day 1. This month is a milestone after 10 years at the FAA. Congratulations!
Audrey, what does FAA mean for you?
Open-mindedness, family atmosphere, think tank.

What has been your best moment at the school?
The first 5th grade graduation in 2016 has been a memorable moment.
It was not only a milestone for the FAA but also, more importantly, they were my students from K and 3rd grade. We had shared so many memories from classroom experiences to the first overnight trip Canada. To see them graduating was a very emotional moment.
What is your French motto?
“La vie c’est comme un bicyclette, il faut advancer pour ne pas perdre l’equilibre.”
What is your English motto?
“It’s impossible, said pride.
It’s risky said experience.
It’s pointless said reason.
Give it a try, whispers the heart.”
