A good teacher never goes out of style, just like an old-fashioned pizza party!

Let the rest of New Orleans know about an excellent teacher and he or she could win a pizza party for the class.


Has your child had a truly fantastic teacher this year or in the recent past? Step up your planned "Teacher Appreciation Week" gift or activities a notch by nominating him or her for our annual Teacher-of-the-Year honor. We'll run the winning essay, along with a picture of the teacher, in our May/June issue.

Here are the details:

  • Nominations should be in essay form, no longer than 1,000 words.
  • Your nominated teacher must be a full-time teacher (not a substitute or classroom aide), preschool through 12th grade, at a public, private, or parochial school in the following parishes: Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, and St. Charles.
  • The nominated teacher must be in good standing and have been a teacher for at least five years.

Please include the following information:

  • Your name, email address, and phone number.
  • The teacher's full name, grade and/or subject(s) taught, school name, school address, and phone number.
  • Send via email to [email protected].
