About Ms Maria Lamrani

I am Maria Lamrani, an educator, author, and transformational leader with a passion for unlocking the potential of every child. With over 20 years of diverse international experience, I strive to blend a deep passion for learning with the latest insights from neuroscience. My journey has spanned continents, from Europe to Africa and Asia, allowing me to serve as a teacher, trainer, and principal and fueling my desire to illuminate the minds of the next generation. My interaction with students of various age groups has honed my expertise, with a particular resonance found in Early Childhood Education. My fascination with the intersection of neuroscience and education has blossomed in this field, revealing profound implications for teaching methodologies.In addition to being an educator and trainer, I am a dedicated author of children’s books, using my words to inspire and enlighten on essential topics impacting the well-being of children and parents alike. My global experiences have enriched my perspective and deepened my appreciation for the cultural nuances inherent in educational environments. To ensure that every child has a safe and supportive place to learn and develop, I am committed to promoting a more holistic view of education and to designing learning spaces that are reflective, evidence-based, and welcoming to all. With the common goal of expanding the scope and significance of early childhood education, I cordially invite my fellow educators to embark with me on an eye-opening journey into novel, child-centred approaches.
