Rebecca Wells Broussard is a high school graduate of Madisonville High School, where she grew up. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Teaching in Elementary Education and a Master of Education in Supervision with a Reading Specialization and Mid-Management Certification from Sam Houston State University.
She taught kindergarten through fifth grades in Huntsville ISD, teaching multi-age classroom classrooms, introduced by Dr. Skip Meno, Commissioner of Education, in the early 1900s. She was a campus administrator in Spring ISD, Willis ISD, and a central office administrator in Willis ISD (assessment coordinator). During her years as a public education teacher and principal, she was also a consultant for service centers and school districts throughout the state of Texas, teaching teachers how to do “reading/writing workshop and balanced literacy.” After leaving public education, Rebecca taught for Sam Houston State University for 12 years in the education department as an adjunct professor teaching literacy/assessment classes to students who were about to graduate and begin their careers as elementary teachers.
Over the years many honors have been bestowed upon Mrs. Broussard from various literacy groups such as International Reading Association, where she served as a board member, Sam Houston Area Reading Council, where she served as President, New Jersey Writing Institute, and SHSU for her work in literacy.
Rebecca served on the Willis ISD Board of Trustees for 21 years, where she gave back to her community. She also serves on a volunteer board, Eagles Nest Ministries of Conroe, along with her husband, Rod Broussard.
Rebecca and Rod live in The French Quarter on Lake Conroe, Willis, Texas. They are proud of their 12 grandchildren, ranging in ages from 3 months to 21 years old. They are members of WoodsEdge Community Church in The Woodlands, where her brother Dr. Jeff Wells is the lead pastor. One of their favorite things to do is spend time in Centerville in their historical house built in 1912.
Rebecca and her youngest daughter, Ashley Fayle, are the owners and directors of a school, Lake Conroe Christian Academy. You will find Rebecca there Monday- Thursday. It has been a dream come true to own a school with her daughter and to teach, direct and manage their own early childhood learning academy, ages 1 year to second grade. Mrs. Broussard believes small class sizes, differentiated learning, highly qualified teachers, creative skills, critical thinking, and fostering a love of learning are of the upmost importance for success in all schools.
