Veronique Corbeil, Communications

Originally from Laurentians I am at 19th year in education. My initial diploma was in teaching at the preschool and primary school level. I completed my masters in emotional intelligence and teenagers with behavioral difficulties. Possessing an unquenchable thirst for discovery, I travel around the world not only to discover new cultures but also to study the different approaches in the world of education. Thus I crossed Canada to live two years in Yukon. I finished my stay on the Yukon Territory as vice-principal at the secondary level. Today, I came back to the Laurentians. Where I continue to practice the knowledge acquired through time. I started the creation of a interdisciplinary kit for primary level students (10-12 y.o.). I continuously dream of building an environment where my ideas will be experienced in an exponential fashion! In march 2022, I won the Highly recommended project in Science on Stage Prague. Since, I am involved in the committee of Science on Stage Canada!
