Becky Kreamer

In all of her endeavors, Becky has always been passionate and committed to preventing problems and finding solutions to improve the lives of others.  Becky has shown this commitment to the students, parents and faculties she has worked with in her 13 years as an educator.  During those years as a special education teacher and later as a crisis interventionist, she was twice named teacher of the year.  She served on the Teacher Morale Committee, was Lead Teacher,  was on the district Discipline Committee, chaired Student Council, Dance Team, and many other activities to improve the schools she served, as well as the lives o f the troubled students she worked with.  She was certified as a Boys Town Consultant, wrote a reading program for dyslexic students, and worked tirelessly towards innovative solutions to the complex issues facing schools. 

Later, Becky became a licensed attorney in the state of Louisiana, initiating her practice to serve the underprivileged and impoverished, and to be the voice of the children in difficult situations.  Again, as an attorney, Becky worked to lead others to better solutions for their lives 

The combination of her unique background and skill set has propelled her into her current career:  Becky is now a full time Educational and Business consultant, teaching courses at the Department of Continuing Education for the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, working with many businesses and non-profits as a consultant to further the mission of our school systems in their communities, and working directly with school districts and individual schools.  She has delivered over 100 presentations both as keynote speaker and staff development to schools and various community organizations.  She has written the district Discipline Matrix which received positive commendations from the Governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, has begun school reform in alternative programs, worked with school administrators to enhance leadership skills, and served as a volunteer for 5 years to teach teens decision making skills to improve their futures.  In addition, she most recently authored 100+ Ways to Help:  A data driven volunteer program for our local school system. 

Becky lives in Lafayette, Louisiana with her husband and 4 children.  She is an avid runner, and has competed in 9 marathons. She is involved with her children’s school and church, and is an active volunteer and parent.
