A whole team at the disposal of children and parents
School and nursery management
FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR OF SAINT ANGE COMPANY
Very early on I was passionate about electronics and with friends I created several pirate FM radios, including Radio EVA, which was approved in 1983. I also participated in the creation of the National Federation of Free Radios and the Private Radios Union. Later, the Hit FM group, composed of UGC (films and cinemas) and RSCG (advertising), entrusted me with the management of one of their profit centers. Then, the Hersant Group called me as assistant to the technical director of the Fun Radio network (150 stations). In July 92, I moved to Vietnam and created in 1995 with Luu Thi Bach Lan (my wife) the company EMT (Euro Mekong Traders) Sourcing and Export company. In 2009, following the relocation of the Colette school (Duras) and at the request of several parents of students, we decided to found the Saint Ange school, the only French school having obtained the license of international school. Today, in addition to the general administration of the school, I am in charge of the promotion department, the technical services as well as the teaching of technologies for the students of the school.
Luu Thi Bach Lan (Married name Lefèvre)
FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR OF SAINT ANGE COMPANY
After studying accounting, I moved to marketing at the government company Bach Khoa HCM. In 1991, the Korean company Dong Sun (cosmetics) entrusted me with the national sales management. In 1994, with Frédéric, my husband, we imported our first container of French cosmetic products that we sold through the advertising pages of women's magazines. Thanks to this experience, we are contacted by French importers for their sourcing needs in Asia. We created the company EMT (Euro Mékong Traders). In 2009, we founded the French school Saint Ange for which I obtained the international school license. Today, in addition to the administration of the school, I manage all the contacts with the various supervisory administrations, the Vietnamese staff as well as the supply and logistics of the school's canteen of some 200 daily meals.
FOUNDER OF THAO DIEN CAMPUSES ADMINISTRATOR
Former Bank Manager, I arrived in Vietnam in August 2013 with my whole family, for a complete change of life. From France, we had enrolled our children in the Saint Ange school, then directed by Frederic and Lan. We quickly sympathized with each other, so when the opportunity arose, we did not hesitate, and we partnered with them to set up the first Saint Ange campus in Thao Dien in 2014. Within the Management, I am more specifically in charge of the daily management of the school, in connection with parents and teachers. My goal is to offer families the quality of French education in an international environment.
FONDATRICE DES CAMPUS DE THAO DIEN DIRECTRICE DE CRECHE
Having grown up, and then worked, in the Early Childhood sector, it is with great pleasure and passion that I participated in the creation and then took over the Direction of the Nursery of Saint Ange in 2014.Our goal is to offer families a nursery that meets the standards of the French program, with a touch of the Montessori approach, all in a family environment. Being in charge of the older children (2-3 years old), it is important for me to prepare them for their entry to school: I work closely with the Petite Section teacher all year long.
Becoming a teacher has always been an obvious choice for me. After a degree in English and regional language, I obtained my master's degree in teaching and the school teacher exam in 2014. Attached to my region, I chose to teach in French/Occitan bilingual schools in Toulouse for four years. Since my childhood and my first readings, I have had a passion for Vietnam and when I came across the advertisement of the Saint-Ange school, I knew that it was an opportunity that should not be missed. After 3 years as a CM1/CM2 teacher, I will now be in charge of all the classes since I have been given the role of pedagogical director. I am happy to be able to coordinate the team, to propose new projects and to work in connection with the parents' association. I will put all my energy and enthusiasm in the service of the school project and the children's development!
I have been married for 20 years and have 3 children. I grew up in the North of France and our two oldest children were born there. In 2006, my husband had the opportunity to work in Singapore and we jumped at that chance. After many years in business and finance, I wanted to refocus on what I always wanted to be: a school teacher! After having been an assistant in a PS (Preschool) class in a bilingual French school, I evolved with a double level of PS /MS (Preschool-PreKindergarten) and then a class of MS. I love to put children on the path of learning, to make them discover for the first time the holding of a pencil, reading or writing, and many other beautiful things. We arrived in Vietnam in October 2021. I am therefore delighted to be in charge of the “Petites Sections” (Preschool) of Saint Ange. It's a school on a human scale where it's easy to exchange and share our experiences between teachers and with the community.
KINDERGARTEN TEACHER - MOYENNE SECTION
Originally from the Deux-Sèvres (France), I have a degree in psychology, a Master's degree and have passed the French competitive examination to become a school teacher. Having always been passionate about travelling, discovering new cultures and wanting to be a teacher since I was very young, I had my first experiences abroad at the Lycée Français de Vienne in Austria, then in Cairo in Egypt. This year I am happy and enthusiastic to join Vietnam. I am passionate and dynamic and will be in charge of the middle sections in order to share my knowledge and give them the desire to learn.
KINDERGARTEN TEACHER - GRANDE SECTION
I am a very curious young woman who loves her job. After my baccalaureate, I studied for 3 years in a science faculty. The last year I worked with a school teacher bringing my scientific knowledge and skills. With this teacher we entered a national science competition where we won a prize. I decided to do a Master's degree in education and to take the competitive examination for school teachers. Passionate about travelling, I taught for six years in France, then I went to a kindergarten in Hong Kong and now I am in Vietnam. I love sports and music. I do not hesitate to share these two passions with my students: my flute is a precious tool in class.
I graduated from my EJE program in 2018 IN France. After 7 months in a nursery, I want to discover the world while continuing to work with children. In 2019, I will engage in a civic service and fly to Vietnam. I work in 6 orphanages, participate in the daily life and propose psycho-educational activities. In October 2020, I join the Saint Ange crèche and then I took over the CP class in 2021. Joining a small structure means investing in a family environment where I can take the time to accompany families and children during the key stages of their development. I like the idea of participating in the construction of children's identity and transmitting universal values
TEACHER - CLASS CP - CE1
After studying philosophy, I spent five years working as an archaeologist and then as a communication manager for the "culture and history" department of the city of Douai. I then taught in the mining area of Northern France, mainly with students aged 6 to 8. My dream of expatriation to Saigon came true thanks to the Saint-Ange school. I have been teaching the CP/CE1 class since last year.
TEACHER - CLASS CE1
After completing my degree in applied foreign languages in Spain, in 2009 I left my native south-west but never lost the accent. After passing the competitive examination, I arrived in Paris and stayed there for ten years as a school teacher.
Coming from a family of globetrotting teachers, working abroad was natural. It allows me to combine education and meeting foreign cultures, my two passions.
Currently in charge of the Ce1 class for a third year, I am fully fulfilled in the Saint-Ange school, focused on human values, proximity with families in an idyllic setting.
TEACHER - CLASS CE2
I grew up on the island of La Reunion with a mother who was an assistant teacher in an elementary school. It was therefore obvious that I should go into education. With my school teacher's exam in my pocket, I taught for 6 years in the Paris region and then in Reunion Island. The call of experience abroad led me to spend a year in New York where I worked in a French afterschool. Unfortunately, the sanitary crisis brought me and my newly grown family back to my native island for a year. We quickly headed for Vietnam, where three generations of my ancestors, including my paternal grandfather, lived. The Saint Ange school represented in every way my vision of the teaching profession with the team spirit and the stimulating environment to encourage positive learning and a place of professional growth.
TEACHER - CLASS CM1
Of French-Quebec origin, I had the chance to live in different countries from a very young age: USA, Canada, Belgium, Australia, Spain or Lithuania. I obtained my university degree in archaeology in Paris. I am also a scuba diving instructor, an exciting activity that occupies my free time. After several years, I went back to studying in order to become a school teacher, as it is a career that has always attracted me. In 2018, after passing the French competitive examination, I left to teach for 3 years in Mayotte. But the desire for change sent me to Vietnam, a country whose culture and language have always attracted me. It is thanks to the opportunity to teach at the Saint Ange school in CM1, for my greatest delight. I love to exchange with children, to teach them everything that will allow them to build themselves as adults.
TEACHER - CLASS CM2
Holder of the Philosophy Aggregation, I taught 6 years at the university
and 11 years at the high school, before moving to Vietnam last year. After
having traveled extensively in Southeast Asia, my husband and I fell in love
with this country, where we decided to try expatriation, successfully thanks to
the recruitment of my husband at the Saint Ange school. Looking for a career
change in teaching, I did several replacements in elementary schools last year,
during which I enjoyed being involved with a younger audience. I am now very
happy to be able to take care of the CM2 this year, in a dynamic and
human-sized school, allowing me to do everything possible for the success of
With a Master's degree in Communication in English, I first worked as a Journalist for 2 worldwide Press Agencies, which allowed me to travel the world. I consider myself as a World Citizen as I have always lived in a multi-cultural and multi-lingual environment. I have been living in Vietnam since 2015 and I teach Communication and Languages to various audiences. I like to take on new challenges and mainly communicate my passions to the public. I wish to bring my experience and enthusiasm to Saint Ange which is a human-sized structure, which favours privileged exchanges as well with the Students, the Parents and the School Team
ENGLISH-SPEAKING TEACHER FOR ELEMENTARY STUDENTS
I moved to Vietnam at a young age, when my parents emigrated here from the Philippines in 1996. Having obtained my BA in communication, I swiftly realized that my passion in communication revolved around shared meanings multi-culturally. As a byproduct of the International school system and Vietnamese culture, my love for sharing the English language to students flourished, especially during their most pivotal years when self expression and identity is crucial. In joining the Saint Ange team this year, I hope to facilitate meaningful interactions with my students that will encourage them in their future English learning. In addition, I am beyond excited to get a deep dive into French culture.
TEACHER OF FRENCH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE (FLE)
I arrived in Vietnam in September 1990 as a volunteer teacher and had the great fortune to teach for two years at the French school Colette, which later became the French Lycée Marguerite Duras. I was then in charge of a vast program to set up bilingual classes within the Vietnamese educational system, which allowed me to perfect my knowledge in methodology and coordination of pedagogical teams. I joined the Saint Ange team in September 2020 and appreciated the professionalism and organization of the school. I am looking forward to meeting up with last year's students and certainly many others to help them integrate into their new classes and feel at ease with French.
