My name is Mrs. Leah Begnaud.  I teach Literature, Religion, and P.E.  I began my affiliation with Bishop Noland Episcopal Day School 32 years ago on my first day of first grade.  Since that day I have worn many hats here student, teacher, coach.  My greatest hope for the students I teach is for them to leave here with a desire to be life-long learners to never stop becoming the people they will be.

After receiving my associate’s degree in paralegal studies, I decided that I wanted to really do what I had a passion for – teaching!  I went back to McNeese State University and received a B.A. in Liberal Arts.  

I love teaching at EDS.  There is such a positive atmosphere.  The buildings just hum with excitement from both teachers and students.  It is home to me.  There is no greater joy for me as a teacher than to see a student light up when talking about a book they have read.  It is my goal as the Literature teacher to get students excited about reading and reading constantly.

I wanted to come back to teach at EDS because I wanted to be a part of creating the same kind wonderful experience I had here for other students.  My own children also attend EDS because I wanted them to be able to learn in a safe Christian environment.  I believe they are receiving the best education possible.

I have three children.  Cameron is in 6th grade.  Sarah is in 5th grade.  Emily is in 1st grade.  

Besides being a leader in Literature, I am a leader in P.E., volleyball, and track.  I am the head volleyball coach and head girls track coach.

When I am not at school, I enjoy running, and I am an avid reader.
