Dream Teachers honored Zachary Elementary teacher Kerri Lee on May 12. Kerri Lee was named a semifinalist for Louisiana Teacher of the Year earlier this year.
Dream Teachers is a statewide, nonprofit organization dedicated to recognizing and rewarding exceptional educators throughout the state of Louisiana and raising public awareness of the true value of the teaching profession. As a team, they work with businesses, industry, and organizations throughout Louisiana to elevate the teaching profession.
Dream Teachers board member, West Baton Rouge Parish Superintendent Wes Watts, presented Kerri Lee with recognition from Dream Teachers.
Watts said, “I am proud to represent Dream Teachers in recognizing Kerri Lee for the amazing work she does every day for the students at Zachary Elementary. Being selected as a Semifinalist for Elementary State Teacher of the Year is a great honor that Kerri is very deserving of. The mission of Dream Teachers is to promote the teaching profession and recognizing great teachers like Kerri Lee is one way we do that.”
Dream Teachers will host a gala on July 30 at the WWII Museum in New Orleans to honor all the Teacher of the Year and Principal of the Year finalists and winners will be announced at that event.
