L'Ecole Française du Maine is thrilled to welcome Aurelia Chanteur to its faculty in the grade 4/5/6 classroom in the fall 2015. Aurélia was born in Paris and grew up in Asnières-sur-Seine (Hauts de Seine, France) and Martinique. After earning her Baccalauréat / French High School Degree in Science, she attended a Preparatory School where she studied Physics and Chemistry for three years in preparation for a Grande Ecole d'ingénieurs (Engineering School). She changed her mind and decided to study Economics at university for a year. Meanwhile, she prepared the entrance examinations for acceptance into a Grande Ècole de Commerce (Business School). She joined ICN Business School at Nancy (France) where she studied marketing, accounting, law and human resources. After completing a foreign exchange semester in HEC Montréal (Canada) and 2 years apprenticeship as a Project Manager at Thales Airborne Systems at Bordeaux (France), she was awarded a Master's Degree in Business with a major in Supply Chain Management in 2011.
Although she has a business background, she wanted to explore new horizons and became a journalist for a while before becoming a teacher in 2012. Since 2012, she has settled into her teaching career and has enjoyed teaching elementary school in Martinique. Moreover, as she loves travelling and extending her teaching skills, she worked as an English teacher in Thailand for grades 1, 2 and 3 for a semester during the 2014-2015 academic year. She enjoys practicing sports and is really happy to join the team of l'Ecole Française du Maine.
