Catherine Randall (LA '16) | Third-grade teacher, Joseph J. Davies Elementary | Meraux, LA

Date of Award: October 24, 2016

Third-grade teacher Catherine Randall has been a member of the St. Bernard Parish community for more than a decade and played a pivotal role in the school's comeback after it was decimated by Hurricane Katrina (along with most of the parish and Catherine's own home). Teachers and administrators consider Catherine a "go-to" person for elementary school policy, practices and procedures. She sits on the district's math curriculum team, serves as Davies' public information liaison, mentors candidates for the district's alternate certification program, and now holds the new position of third-grade teacher leader. At her notification, Catherine included her St. Bernard Parish family when she addressed the assembly: "You’re only as good as the team you’re a part of," she said.
