My Teaching Philosophy: I am a big believer that teachers and parents are partners in education. I work hard to keep parents informed about happenings in the classroom, so that you are up-to-date on your child's education. If your child is having successes or difficulties, I will let you know about it, make suggestions on how you can help, and work with you to provide any additional assistance. Likewise, I want to feel free to contact me about your child's academic progress. We must keep the lines of communication open.

My name is Shantel Octave. I am the 7th grade Reading and APA Reading and 8th grade ELA teacher. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Louisiana Tech University. I also have 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 have a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Loyola University New Orleans.

This is my 13th year in education. I have taught ELA and Social Studies classes from 5th through 12th grade.

When not at school, my husband of 19 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!
