Mrs. Vanessa Terry
I am proud to return to my hometown as principal of Ethel Schoeffner Elementary. It has been fascinating to see the growth and development of this special neighborhood community over the years. I earned my bachelor's degree in elementary and special education from Nicholls State University. After teaching first and third grade for several years at Mimosa Park Elementary, I later worked as a teacher facilitator of technology where I had the privilege of servicing students and teachers at six of our elementary schools, including Schoeffner. I continued my schooling at Nicholls State University adding an educational technology facilitator certification and earning a master's degree in educational leadership. Prior to coming to Schoeffner, I served as an assistant principal and then principal at Luling Elementary. I have had the privilege of working for St. Charles Parish Public Schools for 21 years.
My husband Shawn and I have two daughters, Amelie and Lauren. We love spending time together on the water and traveling, especially to Disney World.
