Belle Chasse High School

Ms. Trudi Borne » Introduction


I am a life long resident of Belle Chasse attending BCHS since Kindergarten in 1977.  Mrs. Nelly DesPointes was my French teacher here at the high school, and she is the reason I became a teacher.  I graduated in 1989 and then attended Nicholls State University to obtain my BA in education.  I am certified in French and Social Studies.  My first year of teaching was at Buras High School (DTR=down the road) in the 1995-96 school year.  While I loved my time at Buras High, I was always wanting to come home.  Finally, my transfer was granted and my first year at BCHS was 2002-2003.  Another teacher that I admired was Mr. Douglas O. Schilling who turned his yearbook over for me to complete in that year.  That was a very busy year of wedding planning along with my first ever yearbook as the adviser and not the student.  Health problems with my only born child in 2004 took me away from the yearbook, then further health problems kept me away as the years went by.  It was the 2014-2015 school year when I returned to my "normal" schedule teaching French and completing my first yearbook without interruption.  I am now still teaching French and still completing Belle Chasse yearbooks.  I will forever be a "CARDINAL FOR LIFE" no matter where I am working or living.  As we used to say in 1989......Go Big Red!!!
