My name is Shantel Octave. I am the 7th grade Reading and APA Reading teacher. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Louisiana Tech University. I also hold a Master's degree in Education with a specialization in Curriculum and Instruction and a Master's endorsement in Educational Leadership from Western Governor's University. I also hold a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Loyola University New Orleans.

This is my 12th year in education. I have taught ELA and Social Studies classes from 5th through 12th grade, but 7th grade is definitely special to me because I get to see my students transition to independent readers and writers.

When not at school, my husband of 18 years, Shannon, and I spent time with our 2 sons, Shannon Jr and Shayler. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, baking, and solving puzzles. I am originally from a small town in Louisiana called Edgard. My family and I are huge New Orleans Saints fans!
