Sydney Brignac – Juban Parc Elementary and Livingston Parish

{Nominated by :: Carlee Hurley, Paul Brignac, Ashley Manno & Melanie Scott} Sydney is a special education elementary school teacher for Juban Parc Elementary. The kids she inherited were struggling from frequent teacher turnover. Sydney always goes above and beyond for her kids. Her kids have made massive strides in their behavior and education. Her job doesn’t end when she gets home either. She spends her evenings planning and figuring out the best way to maximize her kids’ education. Her kids have shattered expectations and have achieved goals that were believed to be impossible to reach. The difference she has made in her kids lives can not be understated. If you ask her coworkers, paraprofessionals, principal, or especially her kids’ parents they will all tell you that she is completely dedicated to her kids and will do everything in her power to make sure her class thrives. She has been blessing to the Livingston Parish school system and the world is lucky to have her teaching our youth.
