2023 Lafayette 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 you 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 2023 Lafayette 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.
