In his own words: Landry announces that he is stepping down as Abbeville High Principal

Ivy Landry has served as principal at Abbeville High School since 2011. He said he has made the tough decision to step down from that post. He wrote this message for the Abbeville High community.

After decades of teaching the subject in the classroom, math is still an important part of Joyce Broussard Gauthier’s life.

Gauthier enjoys math, career

Seven seems to be an important number for Joyce Broussard Gauthier in 2017.
Let’s do the math.
7 children.
17 grandchildren.
7 great-grandchildren.
Plus, she happens to be 88 years old. OK, so stay with me here.
8 + 8 = 16 1 + 6 = 7 Seven again! Math teachers notice that kind of trivia.
Joyce Gauthier was a math teacher at Maurice High School for multiples of seven years plus.
Even a simple chat with Joyce includes a math problem.
