2024 New Orleans Mom Teacher of the Year

There are not enough ways to say THANK YOU for all that our beloved teachers have done for us and our children, especially over the last few years. Thank you for your flexibility, thank you for putting in extra hours, thank you for coming up with creative lesson plans to keep your students engaged, thank you for spending your hard-earned money on classroom supplies. Thank you for your unending devotion to our children and our families. One small way we thought we could extend our appreciation is to honor one very deserving teacher with our 2024 New Orleans Mom Teacher of the Year title!

Whether s/he teaches our little ones in preschool or imparts his/her knowledge on our kiddos finding their way in middle school or spends his/her days preparing our teenagers to go off to college, his/her role as a teacher involves so much more than the title implies. And for that, s/he deserves to be recognized.

What is the 2024 New Orleans Mom Teacher of the Year?

We are now accepting submissions for the “2024 New Orleans Mom Teacher of the Year.” We are looking for a local teacher who stands out among the crowd. Ask yourself:

  • Does s/he go above and beyond his/her role as a teacher and make a difference in the lives of the children s/he teaches each day?
  • Does s/he set an example and offer encouragement for other educators and parents around him/her?
  • Does s/he play a vital part in the New Orleans community?
  • Does s/he do an outstanding job in his/her role as an educator, inside and outside of the classroom?

It might be your child’s teacher, your family member, your neighbor, your co-worker, or your best friend. We want to hear about the teachers that inspire you! Nominations will be accepted from EVERYONE … parents, colleagues, friends, and even students themselves.
