My name is Dana Boudreaux. I was born in 1980 to the late Wayne Boudreaux and Oreline Gotreaux Boudreaux. I grew up in Lake Arthur along with my older sister and attended Lake Arthur schools until 1995. I then transferred to Notre Dame High School in Crowley where I graduated in in 1998.
I attended McNeese State University, graduating in 2000 with an Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies. I immediately knew that I wanted to further my education to fulfil my childhood dream of becoming a teacher. I returned to college and pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in the field of Elementary Education graduating in 2004.
January, 2005 my adventures in teaching began at the Jeff Davis Parish Alternative School for the Spring semester. It was both a challenging and rewarding experience.
In August, 2005 I began my Second Grade teaching career at Ward Elementary and have made it my home. I have no children of my own but have a niece and nephew and many Godchildren whom I enjoy spoiling and spending time with. I have made the students in my class my children. I enjoy being a teacher and mentor to my “little ones”. I laugh and cry with them and feel such pride with every accomplishment.
