Steven Gamache Wins Milken Award in New OrleansPaul Habans Charter School | New Orleans, LA | Nov 13, 2019
Steven Gamache makes his way to the front of the room to accept his Milken Educator Award as students, colleagues and guests continue to cheer. Steven’s rigorous reading and writing curriculum keeps the bar high for all students, many of whom arrived at Habans from underperforming elementary schools, are English learners or have special needs. The numbers reflect his dedication. Last year Habans had the highest academic growth of any open enrollment elementary school in New Orleans, and Steven's cohort went from 55% to 73% in achieving basic proficiency and above. His highly effective instructional practices helped both Habans and his previous school move from an F to a C rating within just two years.
