Broussard named Region 4 Elementary Teacher of the Year

Schneider Middle School teacher Juliette Broussard was named the 2020 Region 4 Elementary Teacher of the Year during the organization’s 30th annual Teacher of the Year ceremony.

Broussard advanced to the regional level after being named Pasadena ISD’s Elementary Teacher of the Year during the district’s annual luncheon celebration, May 28, 2019.

She will represent elementary and middle school teachers from the Region 4 area at the Texas Teacher of the Year awards ceremony, which will take place on October 25.

“When I began working as a teacher, I knew that I'd found my calling,” Broussard said. “This award means so much to me because I think the world of my students and I desire to help them succeed and develop on their educational journey. As such, I dedicate this award to my phenomenal students who bring out the very best in me.”

Broussard, who leads the fifth grade science team at Schneider Middle, consistently has the highest benchmark, Mock STAAR and STAAR scores in Pasadena ISD.

She tutors students before and after school and voluntarily works with them during conference periods to help students achieve academic success.

Broussard goes above and beyond for her students. She is known to go to a student’s residence to speak to the parents if they are struggling in school.

Her dedication to students has not gone unnoticed. She has won numerous science teaching awards and fellowships, such as the Eugene Chiappetta Chemistry and Environment Teaching Award. She attends summer training sessions at Rice University and spends countless hours implementing all she has learned to help students close performance gaps.

“Juliette is extremely deserving of this honor,” said the school’s principal, Kristin Still. “She believes and champions for all students without exception.  She is poised, gracious and patient and I am extremely proud to work alongside her daily. Congratulations to Juliette Broussard for the incredible distinction and honor of the Region IV Elementary Teacher of the Year.”
