EDMAND RACHAL


Rachel, E..jpg

I graduated from Elton High School in May of 1965.  Then worked on our farm in Elton, Louisiana until January, 1966.  I then attended McNeese State University, graduating in May, 1969. I got my Masters +30 in December, 1987. I have been teaching for 49 years in Terrebonne Parish and 38 have been at Terrebonne High School.  I just completed my 7th year head bowling coach at Terrebonne High School and I had two previous years as the assistant bowling coach.  I have been fortunate to teach many of the students on our bowling teams.  I have watched how being a part of a sport has helped many students improve their academic and conduct grades in order to remain on the team.  I truly believe that sports have a positive effect on students that goes beyond participating on the team. In addition to two district boys’ bowling championships, seeing our boys’ team win 3rd place three years ago then 1st place two years ago at the Coca Cola Invitational Bowling Tournament in Baton Rouge was the highlight of my experience as assistant bowling coach at Terrebonne High School. This past year we had two girls and four boys competing in singles in the State Bowling Tournament.
