Summary

My name is Paige Robertson Leger.  I have been an educator for most of my life, but formally since 2009.  I filled many guest positions in Beauregard Parish.  Through the years of filling guest instructor positions and monitoring my own children's progress, I began to wonder if there was a better way to educate some children.  When offered another guest instructor position in December of 2014, I declined.

In January 2015, after many months of research and development, I founded De Beau Microschool.  De Beau Microschool is a hybrid homeschool/private school, and the first of its kind in Southwest Louisiana. Growing this program from the ground up has enhanced my problem-solving abilities and provided ample opportunities for me to lead in uncharted territory. Starting out as the founder, and lone teacher, we are now growing while maintaining the appropriate microschool student/teacher ratio.  De Beau Microschool is now a multi-site educational opportunity in Southwest Louisiana.  

Through the years of teaching at De Beau Microschool, I developed a strategy for teaching phonics to struggling readers.  After several evolutions, the strategy received copyright in 2020.
