Brigitte Fuerst Mangham


Former TCTA District 5 Director Brigitte Fuerst Mangham passed away in late May 2013 after a brief illness.

After earning her bachelor’s degree in education from Stephen F. Austin University, Mangham began teaching at Klein Middle School in Houston. She later earned her master’s degree in curriculum and administration and devoted 33 years to teaching middle school mathematics in Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD, first at Mauriceville Middle School and then at Little Cypress Junior High.

An advocate for teachers, Mangham served TCTA as president of the Little Cypress-Mauriceville local affiliate and faculty representative for Little Cypress Junior High. She was a TCTA member for more than 30 years.

TCTA extends our deepest sympathies to Brigitte’s husband Sam and their children, as well as to her many friends and colleagues.
