• Olivier Guilhem
    Pedagogical Coordinator MENJS, AEFE, MLF

    Olivier earned his teacher certification in the French Ministry of Education in 2005 and brings to FASTB a wealth of international teaching experience in AEFE schools. Beginning with his initial 3-year abroad experience in Bali in 2007, Olivier and his wife, Magali, have also taught on Mauritius Island, where he also served as Pedagogical Coordinator, in the South Pacific at the French School of Vanuatu, and most recently in Doha, Qatar, where he taught 5th grade and physical education and served as the assistant campus director overseeing 33 primary classes.

While he earned a black belt in judo, his biggest success was in track & field – as recently as 2016, he has competed at an elite level, winning the World Cup Decathlon title in the Masters’ age 35-40 category. In addition to his teaching and pedagogical duties at FASTB, Olivier leads our physical education program.

She started her career as a French and English teacher, teaching all grade levels in independent, public, and private school settings.

    She enjoys working in collaborative environments and her experience in bilingual education, management, and event planning prepared her well for an Admissions Director’s role in a multilingual education setting.

    Audrey holds two master’s degrees, one in consulting and training, concentrating on adult education and management, and the other one in education. Her undergraduate degree focused on sociology, psychology and anthropology. She advocates for students to become lifelong global citizens and independent and active learners through collaboration, hands-on activities and differentiated instruction. She believes that children are change-makers in the world.

    Audrey is passionate about nutrition and started her own business as a Health and Wellness Coach.  She also enjoys traveling and exploring new places and foods, photography, live music, reading, baking and spending time with friends and family.
