Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Shantel Octave

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!
