Belle Chasse Primary School’s Mary Beth Newchurch named 2014 District Teacher of the Year

When the Louisiana Department of Education called for “All Excellent Teachers…” to participate in the 2014 Teacher of the Year Program, Plaquemines Parish teachers answered the call. Applications were reviewed along with Student Data, Instructional Video, Observations, and Essays. Evidence of the teacher’s impact on student growth and instructional practices aligned with Common Core Standards were key criteria in the selection process. Mrs. Newchurch moves on to the Regional competition to represent all the exceptional educators in Plaquemines Parish.
