Welcome to Mr. Petit’s class! He looks forward to working with you throughout this school year.
Mr. Joshua Petit was raised in St. Charles Parish and graduated from Hahnville High School in 1999. When he completed high school, he briefly attended LSU before joining the United States Marine Corps. After serving his country all across the globe, Mr. Petit earned his Bachelor’s degree in Social Science from Towson University near Baltimore, Maryland. Upon receiving his undergraduate degree, Mr. Petit moved back home to Louisiana to attend graduate school at UNO. He completed his Master’s degree in teaching in December of 2016.
Mr. Petit was drawn into teaching by the desire to give back to the young people of the community. He has always wanted to share his knowledge with others. Mr. Petit believes in promoting a safe classroom environment where students are able to share their thoughts and views through a respectful form of classroom discussion. Through dynamic learning and active engagement, students will be challenged daily to meet goals and objectives set forth by the curriculum.
Mr. Petit now resides in St. Bernard Parish with his three children. He is truly proud and humble to be a member of the staff at Chalmette High School. Go Owls!!!
