Brittany Bonnaffons of Hahnville High School was one of 22 educators from across Louisiana recently selected for the Louisiana Department of Education’s 2022-23 Teacher Advisory Council.
State Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley made the announcement this month. Louisiana’s inaugural Teacher Advisory Council includes 22 classroom leaders from a wide range of backgrounds and educational settings. This cohort of educators will meet with Brumley quarterly to share feedback on current education initiatives and offer insight on how Louisiana can continue to improve student outcomes.
“One way we elevate teacher voice in Louisiana is by giving them a seat at the table on the issues that matter in our classrooms,” Brumley said. “The educators on our council represent the great diversity of school choices available to Louisiana families. I’m looking forward to learning from their experiences and coming together on solutions that are best for students.”
All Louisiana K-12 teachers were eligible to apply during the application period that ran from Aug. 10-25. The LDOE received nearly 900 applications.
Bonnaffons, Louisiana’s 2023 State Teacher of the Year, just started her 12th year as a teacher. She teaches college algebra and algebra at HHS, as well as serves as head track coach.
