Welcome Parents and Students!

I’ve made this page available to you to give a little background information about myself. I grew up here in St. Charles Parish and graduated from DHS in 2008. I earned my bachelor’s degree at LSU where I majored in English secondary education with a minor in French.

This is my second year teaching at DHS, and I am excited to be back! I know that the St. Charles Parish Public School System expects excellence, and together I believe we can achieve our goal to maintain that excellence!

Let’s make it happen, people!

Dufresne faces charges of carnal knowledge of a juvenile and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. Respess faces the exact same charges. Both teachers have been suspended without pay. She was able to post a $200,000 bond to get released under house-arrest, according to WJHL.

Thought the student maintains that the sex was consensual, the age of consent in Louisiana is 17, and the child was only 16. As a result, the teachers could face up to 17 1/2 years in prison.


4. There Are Reports the 3-Way Was Recorded

According to WJHL, police are actively investigating whether there is a sex-tape in circulation of the three-way tryst. WGNO reports that if the video has been deleted, the victim could be on the hook for destroying evidence.


5. She’s the Daughter of a Prominent Louisiana Judge

WGNO reports that Shelly Dufresne is the daughter of St. Charles Parish, Louisiana, judge Emile St. Pierre. The station reports that due to this, it’s likely an outside judge will be called in to oversee the case.
