Betty also has completed all Education for Living seminar courses and became a team leader and Learning Night facilitator. She is also trained as a certified Stuller Place Advocate.
In 2005, Betty was chosen as Teacher of the Year at N. P. Moss Annex and again in 2012 at Comeaux High School. She has been an LEF nominee numerous times for Teacher of the Year and was selected as a finalist in 2011.
She currently serves as REAL Advisor, Math Department Chair, National Honor Society Advisor, Honors Night Coordinator, and Graduation Committee member at Comeaux High School.

Ms. Compagno began teaching REAL at Comeaux High School in 2008. The REAL curriculum has proven to be a great a success at Comeaux and Betty’s intention to help promote emotional intelligence and service to the school and community has come to fruition!
