Laetitia is in love with a simple lifestyle and spending time with children.
She’s interested in self development and transmission of her knowledge.
She also likes making her home a pretty place and using her hands to make it happen. Currently turning into a home organizer after having kept many things.
She is trained in the 8 shields model to connecting with nature, as a hiking guide, to animate philosophic and mindfulness courses with children, in the Montessori pedagogy (instruction/education) and in Gordon communication method (non-violent communication).
Our native language is French and can help you in this way, I’ll be happy to correct you if you want me to. Notice that I also speak English.
There are 3 children at home, and can have other children coming to our place, especially during school break. It happens that they are up to 9-10 children here. I like being with them and enable them to experiment to take care of the garden, the animals, learn about plants and wild life, spend time in the forest, make creations, practice mindfulness, experiment talking circles ... I am also keen on giving them the opportunity to enjoy and play all together in a nice and peaceful area.
We live with 2 sheep and a cat.
We live in a former farm house in the Alps, at the edge of the biggest natural reserve in France, in a calm hamlet (760 m) where runs a small river, situated in the South East of France, in between Valence and Grenoble (both 1½ hour away).

We can correct your french and lend you books for learning french.
I can share my interest about food, ecological building, permaculture, "education", giving birth, non-violent communication, choices of life, self-development, health...
We can also discuss about traveling, which is one of my passion. I have been a helper myself on my travels.

During school break, you will gain on experience with children. As an adult, you are a model, and living around children also teaches a lot, especially when experimenting the "living together" lifestyle.
During your time off, you can go trekking (walking tracks starting at the front door), fishing (river at 50 meters), snowshoeing*, sledging*, bike riding *, taking pictures of the beautiful surroundings, relaxing in the forest or by the river, reading*, learning French*, internet access* ...
