A Message From Mrs. Stroud:
I am Rachael Stroud and I am honored to be your principal at Plantation Park Elementary. I began my career in education at Airline High School where I spent 7 years. I then went on to teach 4thgrade at Benton Elementary, 5thgrade at Legacy and Kingston, and then I became the RTI Coach at
Kingston. I was the assistant principal at Bossier Elementary for 4 years. It is my pleasure to step into this role and become a part of the Plantation Park family.
Each person in my family is a proud product of the Bossier Parish School System. My husband and I both graduated from Benton High School. Our oldest daughter, Madison, graduated from Benton High and is now working on a business degree. Our youngest daughter, Kaleigh, also graduated from Benton High and is now attending college at Louisiana Tech.
I look forward to serving the students, staff, and families of Plantation Park. My purpose is to foster a creative and collaborative learning environment that demonstrates and supports the vision and mission of Plantation Park. It is my goal to instill a passion in all teachers to reach all students. My hope is to inspire each student with the ability to attain a strong academic foundation and character while becoming leaders of their own education. I am thankful for the strong partnership with PPE and the community and intend to continue that positive relationship. I look forward to working alongside each of you. I believe that PPE is the place to “B”!
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you need anything.
