Dr. Theda M. Ambrose, Teacher at Calcasieu Parish School Board, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in middle school English.
Dr. Ambrose’s childhood ambition was to become a nurse, but when she completed high school, nursing was the farthest thing from her mind. She went to college intending to major in speech pathology and fell in love with teaching along the way. Before embarking on her career path, she earned a Doctor of Philosophy from Union Institute University in 1996. Dr. Ambrose believes that the most important decision that a person can make is to find a career that they love so it does not feel like work.
Dr. Ambrose’s most notable achievement was seeing her students graduate, become productive individuals, and progress through life. For the past 45 years, she has been a teacher with the Calcasieu Parish School Board, and she is proud to have taught multiple generations of her students’ families. In her spare time, she volunteers for the Give Foundation at her church. As a testament to her success, Dr. Ambrose was named Middle School Teacher of the Year in 2002. She has been inducted into the National Education Association and the Democratic 40 and is past president of Delta Sigma Theta.
