TownTalk Radio and BISD would like to welcome Mrs. Delcambre. Mrs. Delcambre was born June 1, 1965, in Slaton Texas. Her parents were migrant workers who decided to settle in west Texas. She went to school in Slaton until the 5th grade. After that, she attended and graduated from Wilson ISD. She worked for a few years and then met her husband Edward and they married in 1985.
Mr. and Mrs. Delcambre have 3 children. Joseph, age 32, who lives in Wichita, Kansas with his wife Laura and their daughter Rowan who is almost 2. Stephen, age 30, lives in Lubbock with his wife Kaylee and their 2 children Hudson age 6 and Henley age 4. Lastly, Lillian, age 29, lives in Lubbock with her daughter Victoria who is 6.
Mrs. Delcambre was a homemaker for the first 9 years of her marriage. She raised her kids and once the last one was in school she decided to go back and get a degree. In 1995 she started at SPC in Levelland and after her first semester she transferred to Texas Tech and graduated in 1998. She stated, “Raising my kids and going to school was hard but with the help of my husband and family I was able to accomplish my goal and become a teacher”. She earned a bachelor degree in Multidisciplinary in Science.
She started teaching at Lorenzo ISD in the 3rd and 4th-grade level and stayed there for 15 years. In 2015 she decided to move to Lubbock ISD and teach 6th-grade math which later decided wasn’t for her. Soon after, she started at Richard Milburn Academy, a charter school where she stayed for 3 years and really enjoyed it. After feeling as though she wasn’t being challenged anymore she decided to apply at the elementary level again.
Mrs. Delcambre stated, “Ms. Hathaway emailed me and asked if I wanted to apply for a position in her school in Brownfield. I accepted and that is how I became a 1st-grade teacher at BISD. Coming back to elementary is the best thing I could have done. I am really enjoying it and I had forgotten what a reward it is to teach young children, children that want to learn. I hope to be at BISD for a long time.”
Thank you, Mrs. Delcambre, for sharing your story with us. We are so glad to have you be such an important part of our wonderful community.
