"My goal is to see children as excited about a museum tour as they are about Disneyland. It’s possible! That challenge is why I love sharing Paris with children through interactive adventures like treasure hunts. We all may quickly forget facts, but fascinating stories last in our memories. When children can directly engage with objects, their imaginations are activated.
I have a background is in child psychology, which helps me engage both little explorers and sceptic adolescents. I spent years developing strategies to ignite curiosity and to find a key to the heart of every child. I believe that learning should be fun. As Albert Einstein put it: ‘Education is that which remains, if one has forgotten everything he learned in school."
