Arlene Meraux Elementary Teacher Feature: Maggie Roussell

Today is #TeacherFeatureWednesday, and the St. Bernard Parish School Board would like to salute Maggie Roussell, 4th grade teacher leader at Arlene Meraux Elementary.

"Maggie Roussell has shined as our Fourth Grade Teacher Leader.  She is an extremely bright and energetic educator who is a team player and is always willing to lend a helping hand!  She is certainly an asset to Arlene Meraux Elementary and I am proud to say she is one of my Meraux Bees!"​ 

- Natalie Albers, Principal of Meraux Elementary

Maggie is our teacher leader for the fourth grade, and I don't know what I would do without her. She always has everything ready for us, and thinks about things that I would never remember. Our team is comprised of three brand new teachers, and she is always there for us every step of the way. She answers all of our questions, and is always there sharing her ideas with us. I feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing team, with such a great teacher leader. Maggie has definitely made my first year easier, and I couldn't have done it without her!​

- Christina Johnson, 4th Grade Teacher at Meraux Elementary

Dedicated. Leader. Inspiring.  Those are three words I would use to describe Maggie Roussell.  Having Maggie Roussell as my teacher leader in my first year of teaching has been instrumental.  Maggie is such a great leader, and is always going above and beyond, not only for her students, but also for us, as her co-teachers.  She is always willing to help us with anything and everything.  Maggie is such a great role model and I truly could not have been more blessed to have her across the hall from me this year! ​

-Hannah Haddad, 4th Grade Teacher at Meraux Elementary School


As a first year teacher, it has truly been a privilege to work beside Maggie Roussell. I have utilized her effectiveness by her support and guidance throughout the year.  Maggie is a strong leader and a highly effective teacher. Some of the many qualities that she possesses are passion, dedication, patience, and professionalism. Each day, Maggie guides and challenges her students to do their personal best. I am fortunate to have her on my team and her students are fortunate to have her as a teacher. She is truly invaluable to Arlene Meraux Elementary.
