Ascension Public Schools announce 2021-2022 Teachers, Principals of the Year
Ascension Parish Public Schools announced the Teachers of the Year and Principals of the Year for 2021-22.
The top educators were selected by their respective school peers.
On March 15 at 5:30 p.m., all honorees will be recognized before an Ascension Parish School Board meeting at St. Amant High School, where the district will name a top teacher for primary, middle, and high school divisions.
The district honorees will go on to compete for the state's 2023 Teacher and Principal of the year selection in the summer.
"The work teachers and principals do to support our students is the work we all rally around every day. These individuals recognized as 'excellent' by their peers are exemplary models of what excellence looks like in facilitating student learning," said Ascension Public Schools Superintendent David Alexander. "It is both an honor and a privilege to celebrate and affirm their work. These men and women serve well all the time and are great teammates every day. They lead because of who they are and not because of their titles, and they commit to lifelong learning in themselves and others. They truly make a difference!"
