2008 Wal-Mart Teacher of the Year

Chris LeBoeuf, a resident of Donaldsonville, was named the 2008 Wal-Mart teacher of the year on Feb. 4.

LeBoeuf received a plaque from the Assumption Parish School Board. She works at Assumption High School in Napoleonville and teaches English II and English Senior Applications IV.

A check in the amount of $1,000 was handed to LeBoeuf to be spent on her classroom and students. Also, she received a gift card in the amount of $100 to spend on herself.

LeBoeuf said this is a big deal to her and her family because she wanted to pursue a career in teaching and journeyed back to school at the age of 40, and maintaining two children, Troy and Mia. She said her husband Tommy, of 40 years, and children were supportive of her at all times.

LeBoeuf is a former real estate agent for Casteigne Realty, a former recreation director for West Ascension, and an avid sales manager for two radio stations in Donaldsonville.
