Ms. Dawn Thibodeaux

Hi!  My name is Dawn Thibodeaux, and I teach 6th and 7th grade Gifted English at  S. J. Welsh Middle School.  I have been teaching middle school gifted ELA for 23 years and absolutely love the job as well as my kiddos!!!  I have a Master's degree in English education and a certification in Gifted from McNeese State University.

My goals are to encourage each students' natural talents and promote a positive learning environment with a variety of interesting and rigorous activities throughout the school year as well as prepare my students for the challenge of AP classes in high school, promote lifelong learners, and make a difference in the lives of the children I teach.
