Urban League of Louisiana Recognizes Educators

May 26, 2017

On Saturday, May 20, the Urban League of Louisiana’s Parent Information Center in partnership with Louisiana Federation for Children and Stand For Children Louisiana, held a Teacher Appreciation Brunch. Educators from around the city attended the event held to give educators the recognition they deserve for their dedication and hard work.

 

Two elementary school and two high school teachers nominated by administrators, fellow teachers, and parents were recognized for their contributions to the success of their students.

 

1st place elementary teacher Lynnon Carney from ARISE Academy, nominated by Krista Patrick-Brown. 2nd place elementary teacher Brittany McCormick from Crocker Elementary, nominated by Amanda Aiken. 1st place high school teacher David Cash from McDonough 35 High School, nominated by Samantha Pichon. 2nd place high school teacher Jennifer Boyce from International High School of New Orleans, nominated by Kelly Fischer.

 

A panel of judges comprised of a parent, student, former principal, non-profit organization representative, and alumni advisor reviewed the written nominations and selected the winners. ┬áNominees were scored based on a rubric that outlined the teacher’s demonstrated success, family engagement, student engagement, professional improvement, and their overall contribution to the school’s culture.

 

Ann Duplessis of the Louisiana Federation for Children, Dana Henry of Stand for Children Louisiana, and Sheriff Marlin Gusman and Erika McConduit, President and CEO of the Urban League of Louisiana addressed the educators.

 

Congratulations to all the winners!
