Mrs. Prudhomme

Hi! I am Mrs. Misty Prudhomme. I moved from central Louisiana to Billings in December of 2021.  I finished the 2021-2022 school year at Shepherd Elementary as Mrs. Cindy Todd's long-term substitute teacher for 4th grade math.  I am thrilled that I will be able to teach the same group of students English and Language Arts in 5th grade.  


I graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2000 with a Bachelor of Science degree.  I went on to law school at Louisiana State University, and I received a Juris Doctor degree in 2003.  In 2014, I decided to pursue  second career in education.  I completed the practitioners program at Northwestern State University and earned my teaching certification in elementary education.  


Teaching Experience:

This is my seventh year in the classroom.  I have taught in a private school, as well as in public schools.  I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade.  I've been in self-contained classrooms, where I taught all subjects to the same group of students, and I've been in departmentalized classrooms, where I focused on teaching a specific subject.  I enjoyed teaching every grade and subject, but I am most passionate about teaching ELA in hopes of inspiring a love of reading and writing in all of my students!



I am married to Scott, who is an attorney.  We have two boys, who attend Shepherd Middle School: Mikey (7th grade) and Sean (6th grade).  We have two dogs: Ginny, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever, and Leia, a Cocker Spaniel.


Interests and Hobbies:

My biggest hobby is reading.  I read A LOT!  

I also enjoy watching television.  My family and I like to watch older movies, like Indiana Jones, Rambo, Star Wars, James Bond, Pink Panther, and Chips.  I also really love watching holiday movies.  

As a family, we enjoy traveling.  Since arriving in Montana, many of our weekends have been spent exploring the nearby areas and the great outdoors.  

I am so excited to be a part of the 5th grade team, along with Mrs. Ryan and Mrs. Dahlquist.  I look forward to continuing to get to know your children and guiding them in their personal growth in being successful, lifelong learners.
