Marie-Anne Massicotte (Co-Director, Biamel IV)

Ever since I was a little girl, my greatest dream was to work with children. I didn’t have an easy school career. So I’d come to terms with the fact that my childhood dream couldn’t come true.

3 years ago, on my 23rd birthday, I was given a wonderful opportunity to work with children without going to school. I couldn’t believe it. But I got the job.

So I started my job, which I’ve always dreamed of, on June 20, 2020.

I’m now 26 years old, and I’ve completed my CEGEP prior learning assessment course. I’ve become an assistant manager. I’m thrilled to be able to do my job, which I love and am passionate about, and to be able to learn more.

I am also the mother of 2 children with whom I have the chance to see them every day and to see them grow.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Looking forward to meeting you!
