Kaplan Elementary Names Teacher of the Year


Recently  Kaplan Elementary Principal Andrea Ford announced that Angela Broussard Detraz  was named the school’s 2015-16 Teacher of the Year.  (Note: The Parish Teacher of the Year competition is a year ahead, making her eligible for the 2015-2016 competition.)

Angela Broussard Detraz graduated from McNeese State University in 1993 with a dual certification in Early Childhood Special Education and Kindergarten through eighth grade.

The KES Pre K teacher  began her teaching career at Herod Elementary in Special Education where she worked for twelve years. She is currently teaching at Kaplan Elementary, holding this position for the past nine years.

Upon winning, she stated "I would like to thank my mother, Ada Broussard who was a Kindergarten teacher, for inspiring me to become a teacher and my Para, Charlotte Jones, for helping me be the teacher I am today. A special thanks to all Kaplan Elementary faculty and staff."

The next level of competition for the KES teacher will now be at the parish level.

The former Angela Broussard is married to Luke Detraz.
