Karen Daigle, Principal

Galvez Primary Principal








Help us welcome Karen Daigle as the new Principal of Galvez Primary School.

Daigle has been an employee of Ascension Parish Schools for 23 years. She spent 10 years as an elementary teacher before moving into different leadership roles. She has served as a teacher coach, TAP master teacher, assistant principal, and most recently the principal of Lowery Elementary School.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s degree in educational leadership from Southeastern Louisiana University.

“I stand before you humble, excited, and anxious about this new journey,” said Daigle. “I started my journey in Ascension Parish as a Galvez Pirate student, and I’m back where I started. I cannot wait to work alongside this staff and continue to grow students.”

She is supported by her husband Eddie, son Brandon, daughter-in-law Madeline, and daughter Brooke.
