Love our schools presents


Since 1999, Lafayette Education Foundation (LEF) has hosted its annual Teacher Awards, honoring outstanding PreK4-12 educators in Lafayette Parish public, private, and parochial schools. This year, LEF is partnering with United Way of Acadiana (UWA) to host its annual event, presented by Love Our Schools. The virtual event will be held on May 18 on the UWA Facebook page and will celebrate the dedication our teachers shown facing an unprecedented academic school year. All teachers deserve a larger than life celebration for their continuous work ensuring that all students were educated in a safe and effective way, in person and in a virtual space.

There are three categories in which finalists are chosen: elementary school, middle school, and high school. A top finalist will be chosen in each category.

Educators are nominated by the students, parents, fellow educators, and members of the Lafayette community during a nomination window. Nominations for 2021 are now closed.
