Hello students, parents, and co-creators. My name is Jonathan. I am a 32 year old French native from Paris and I will be your teacher today.

I am a happy step-father who moved to Minneapolis in 2015 to live with my wife and kids: Blake and Samara, 14 and 12.

I have been a professional photographer for more than 13 years now. I also practice traditional Indian-Himalayan Sunyoga, meditation, acupressure. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases since 2013.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most important. Each person is unique and should be treated in a unique way.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares some knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent and passion and love for his work the students will learn something. Then only you have exams.

Life is the biggest exam off all. Every day we are being tested. With our family, friends, work. Hopefully wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.
