Welcome! My name is Lisa Bourgeois, and I teach 7th grade English and 7th grade English Honors at MJHS. I am originally from Florida, and attended college at the University of West Florida where I majored in English and minored in International Studies and Spanish. I have participated in the Greater New Orleans Writing Project and love to read new books and write when I have time. I have taught all levels of high school English, and I hope to prepare my students to be better writers, thinkers, and readers. This is my 20th year teaching, and my 10th year at MJHS. I look forward to a successful year. In addition to teaching ELA, I also am the moderator of the Bookworms (Book Club).
