Congratulations Mrs. Bridget Strothers
Vermilion Parish High School Teacher of the year

       "I Chose to Teach" 

    The ability to make a difference in this world is a very big deal to me.
   I am always seizing the opportunity to teach someone what will help them make a difference in this world. To me, education is simple.  Teaching people to love and respect one another and believe in themselves will take them a long way in this challenging world.
