The ZCSD School Board recognized two students for their community service, along with two valuable teachers for their hard work and dedication.
Students at Zachary High School, sisters Micheala and Nyla Doiron, have conducted a fundraising event to raise money for the ZHS Special Education department. Their service included teaching softball lessons to local children to raise money for the cause. Inspiration for the idea came from their experience as softball players. Michaela recently graduated from ZHS and will be playing softball at Trine University in Indiana.
Retiring teacher, Erin Curry, was honored for her 46-year teaching career. Ms. Curry stated that she has officially taught three generations of students, and thanked the entire school system community for their continuous support. Northwestern Elementary School honored Ms. Curry with a retirement celebration. They expressed their appreciation by stating, “Today we honored an incredible woman! Today we shared how much she has impacted our school, our community, our children, and our lives! Erin Curry, Zachary Schools, and our families have been blessed by your dedication and love for our children! Your selfless heart has been an example for us! You have shown us how to think of others first, how to teach because we LOVE children and their families, AND how to love our school family deeply.”
The board also recognized the Copper Mill Elementary teacher who was named a Louisiana Accelerated Math Teacher Leader. T’Era Lewis was awarded this title and was selected through a competitive process from a large pool of applicants to create resources that support “Accelerate: Louisiana’s Pre-K through High School Tutoring Strategy.” The Louisiana Department of Education stated, “The success of this endeavor to provide Louisiana schools and systems with actionable resources to address unfinished math learning through timely support could not have been realized without the efforts and dedication of these Teacher Leaders.”
