Lafayette Parish School System formally announced the 2021-22 Teacher of the Year for elementary, middle, and high schools.
Recipients include:
● Elementary School - Ms. Ericka Cornay, 5th grade ELA & social studies teacher at Cpl. Michael
Middlebrook Elementary School
● Middle School - Ms. Charity Turpeau, 5th - 7th grade math, science, social studies, & health

● High School - Ms. Kara Rutherford, 9th grade English teacher at Lafayette High School

LPSS utilizes the comprehensive application provided by the Louisiana Department of Education that includes submitting a teaching video, a lesson plan which corresponds to a teaching video, student learning targets, and letters of recommendation in order to fully showcase the talents of each teacher. A rubric is utilized to score the application and top contenders are interviewed by a committee of
community leaders to select the district winner at each grade level. District winners can then compete at the state competition through the Louisiana Department of Education and a winner can move on to compete at the national level. Congratulations to all of these outstanding teachers.
