We are about to wrap up the first semester of the 2021-2022 school year and teachers are gearing up for a long Christmas break. But this is the time local schools honor the best and brightest teachers. Is your favorite teacher on the list?

How Are the Best Teachers Chosen?

Each school that decided to participate has nominated a Teacher of the Year for this school year. These amazing teachers will be judged by a local panel. Winners are the elementary, middle and high school levels will then be selected and they move on to regional competition. If you win at that level, you move on to the statewide competition.

What Is in Store for the Local Teacher of the Year Winners?

Who knows, one of these teachers might be named the overall Teacher of the Year in Louisiana. We all remember how exciting it was earlier this year to find out Marco French from Queensborough was named the overall Principal of the Year in the entire state.

Teachers also have some big time awards on the line. The overall winner drove off in a brand new car after the ceremony earlier this year. The statewide ceremony is usually held in Baton Rouge in the summer. It was held virtually this year because of the pandemic. Hopefully the ceremony will be back in a banquet room next year to honor our state's best and brightest educators.

Who Are the Best Teachers in Bossier Parish in 2021?

All of these Bossier Parish teachers have won Teacher of the Year honors at their particular school and move on to the Parish wide competition. We thank them all for everything they do to help our children.
