Patricia Credeur

I was born and raised in DeRidder, LA, but have made Welsh my home for the past 30+ years.   I received my Master’s Degree in Education from McNeese University.  I am certified to teach Pre-K through eighth grade, and I also hold a Special Education certification.  I have been an elementary teacher for the past 20+ years.  Seventeen of those years has been here at Welsh Elementary.  I have taught 2nd grade and Resource, but have spent the majority of my time teaching 4th grade.  I am currently teaching 1st grade and loving every minute of it! 

          I like to challenge my students to always do their very best and to strive to learn something new every day.  I believe the best thing about teaching is when a student has an “ah-ha” moment and exclaims “Now I get it!”  That’s what teaching is all about.

I am married to Jeffery Credeur.  We have one daughter, Krista, married to Jeremy Davis, of Welsh.  They have blessed us with three beautiful grandchildren, Owen, Audrey, and Sarah.  In my spare time I enjoy traveling, camping, and spending time with family and friends.
