This year’s es- teemed educators are Sarah Turnbull of Chalmette El- ementary, Chelsea Easterling of Trist Middle School, and Cody Jackson of Chalmette High School. The Teacher of the Year competition celebrates teach- ers who have demonstrated excellence in their classrooms and leadership in and outside of the school building. The three district win- ners will participate in the state-wide competition in the spring. Several teachers in the district have been recognized for outstanding achievement over the years. In fact, last year Chalmette High School’s Chris Dier was recognized as the Louisiana Teacher of the Year. Dier is preparing for the national competition, taking place this spring. Superintendent Doris Voitier said the district’s suc- cess could be attributed to the exceptional work happening in classrooms throughout the district. “Our teachers are some of the best in the state,” she said. “We are proud to have Sara, Chelsea and Cody rep- resent the great work hap- pening here in St. Bernard. We know they will do well and wish them luck in the up- coming competition.” (Pictured, l-r): Emily Boackle, Wayne Warner, Cody Jackson, Doris Voitier, Carole Mundt, and Kelli Watson.
