Ms. Cynthia Joseph - principal


     I am the mother of two children, Kevon and Myrionne.  I am in my 19th year of the education profession.  I taught 4th grade for ten years, District Instructional Specialist (DIS) for two years, Media Specialist and Liaison for after-school tutoring with Dryades YMCA for two years, Administrative Assistant Principal for one year, and I'm in my second year as Principal of Lutcher Elementary School.    
     I am an alumni of Southern University of Baton Rouge (SU) and received a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Elementary Education.  I attended Louisiana State University (LSU), received graduate credits and am a Writing Consultant as a result of the graduate studies taken.  I am also an alumni of Nicholls State University (NSU) in which I received a Masters degree
(M. Ed.) in Educational Leadership-Administration and Supervision.
  My hobbies are:  singing, cooking, reading, traveling, spending time with family (movies, eating out, bowling, & "just because" outings) and sincerely enjoy making others feel great about themselves because we are wonderful and blessed beings.  Also, I love Nascar racing!
  Overall, I am an educator/teacher ALWAYS!  I am very optimistic, enthusiastic and love to smile & laugh.  I truly believe that simple gesture of a smile/laugh can brighten someone's moment on a daily.  I ALWAYS try to look at the brighter side of everything, everybody and every situation.   I am a woman of strong faith! 
    Thank you for entrusting me with your little ones, my scholars!  I am excited about being the leader of the school and look forward to a successful school year!
