Executive Committee Series Part 7: Who is the Deltion Editor?

Wanda Lemoine, The Louisiana Deltion editor
Wanda lives in Campti which is close to her original roots of Goldonna  - a Louisiana girl all the way!  She has one son Michael who is 21years old and currently employed in Memphis as a tugboat deckhand. Her mom lives with them, and they take care of each other. There are days her Mom cooks supper for them and days when Wanda cooks. She said Michael is trying to learn to cook which can be fun to watch.

Wanda says, “Michael is my reason for achieving what I have and my inspiration for being the best that I can be.” When Michael was about four, she went back to college and chose education so she could match her time with being with him. Since making that decision she at no
time thought choosing to become an educator was a mistake. She loves teaching and her students seem to love her.  

Wanda graduated from Northwestern State with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education degree. She earned an additional degree in Master of Science in Educational Technology.  She is currently working on her plus 30.  She also attends leadership and other workshops to help her both in her personal and professional life.  A goal she would like to achieve is getting her doctorate in education.

She began her teaching career in Desoto Parish as a business teacher at All Saints High School for eight years.  One of her favorite parts of that position was being in charge of a successful printing business at local high school.  They published and printed monthly newsletters, monthly bulletins for two local churches, and quarterly brochures for local businesses. They bound booklets for local high school, made yearly calendars and greeting cards, and designed the school website. 

In 2005, she started teaching the work skills portion of the Option 3 program at the Educational Center in Red River Parish. She is still in Red River Parish, but since Options has been phased out at the state level, she is now teaching the GED part of the new Connections program, while still making sure her students receive work skill training and certification.

She has served on several committees at chapter and/or state levels including Communications, Nominations, Heritage Task Force, and First Timers. She also serves ex-officio on several state committees.  Wanda has held position of The Louisiana Deltion editor since 2007. She has been instrumental in putting the Deltion on the state website. Her latest project is trying to save the State more money by sending more Deltions by email. Besides her chapter meetings, she has attended meetings and district, state, and regional levels.   Wanda is a member of the Bea Davis Class of 2011.

Her interest when not doing school work and/or Delta Kappa Gamma work or taking care of family is reading. She loves to read a variety of types of books.
