Mrs. Michelle B Boudreaux

My name is Michelle B. Boudreaux. I am certified to teach chemistry and physics. From the summer of 2020, I can facilitate DE Introduction to Engineering through LSU. I began teaching non-honors Biology 1 in 2021-22 and re-learning the topic with my students. From the summer of 2021, I am certified to facilitate DE Chemistry 1001 also through LSU.

I understand that your child will be dealing with homework in a number of subjects, some honors-level courses, and possibly dual enrollment. Every effort will be made to minimize what the student has to do at home. But understand, homework and independent study/reading/note-taking are essential to succeed in these courses. Hopefully, between us, we can allow your child to advance in chemistry and/or biology and all of their other subjects. If you have any other questions, now or throughout the semester, do not hesitate to contact me. I have my planning period during the 6th period of the day, roughly from 12:30-1:00 pm. I can be reached by phone at the school at 985-385-8450 or via email at Please join your child's "Microsoft Team" class to receive messages and help them stay ahead of the curve.


I am a native of Chalmette, La., and a graduate of Andrew Jackson High School. I  earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering at Tulane University. Upon graduation, I moved to Norway and worked for the Norwegian national oil company, Statoil, which had expanded the exploration and production of fields in the waters of the Norwegian Continental Shelf in the North Sea. I lived in Norway and worked with Statoil for 15 years. Therefore, I am fluent in Norwegian and conversational in Danish and Swedish. I am currently learning French.

I live locally with my husband, Jack “Chuck” Boudreaux, a Berwick native and graduate of BHS and Nicholls. Once my children were grown, I decided to return to the workforce. But rather than enter the corporate world again, I opted to follow my heart and teach, something I have always loved. I feel my background in chemistry, practical experience in the oil industry, and study of oilfield safety and compliance uniquely qualifies me to teach the subject of chemistry in the heart of the Gulf Coast petroleum belt. 

I have four adult children, spread in each of the US time zones. My oldest daughter has a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Regis University of Denver. She is an RN at Children's Hospital in Colorado. She and her husband reside there with our three granddaughters. My son has a PhD in Biology from Boston University and was for many years a researcher and an instructor at BU. Currently, he is principal at a K-8 parochial school in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He lives in Massachusetts with his bride. My youngest daughter works in fashion design in California. Our foster daughter graduated from LSU Agricultural Sciences, specializing in Horticulture, and is beginning her Master's Degree in Sustainable Agriculture at Missoula University, Montana.
