Ms. Courtney Braud
I am thrilled to be your child's T1 teacher for the 2017-2018 school year at PES! This is my third year teaching at Pontchartrain Elementary School. I taught one year of first grade and now I am currently on my second year of teaching Tranistional-First Grade. A professor once told me that I was born to TEACH. That possibly was one of the best things I could ever be told. I love teaching and I love all my students!!
I attended PES myself when I was in elementary school. This school had me fall in love with learning and I hope to instill that same love of learning to my precious students. I graduated from Louisiana State University in Early Childhood Education with a Bachelor of Science degree. I am certified to teach grades pre-kindergarten through third. I love teaching first grade and T-1. I always like to say, "Learning is fun in T-1!"I am dedicated to make every day an enjoyable and meaningful time for your child.
I truly have a passion for making a difference in the lives of young children. I have a commitment to provide proper guidance, love, and education to encourage each child to grow to the best of their ability in the most developmentally appropriate way. Every day, I am eager to be with my students and have fun while learning in a safe and positive environment.
Research shows that a relationship between the parent, the student, and the teacher are crucial for promoting an educational climate conducive to learning. With that in mind, I am looking foward to working with you and your child as we make a difference that will last a lifetime. Please feel free to contact me anytime. I can be reached through a handwritten note, through the school office, or via email.
