Dear Teacher Community, school leaders, and friends,

It was fantastic to see so many of you at the third annual NOLA Teacher Fest, presented by New Schools for New Orleans and sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl New Orleans Teacher Community. You were nearly 2,000 educators strong, representing 100% of our city’s public schools.

We loved sharing great food and drinks with you, and dancing to the D Play Band, Hot Boy Ronald, Roi “Chip” Anthony, and DJ Polo!

Many of you enjoyed the great photo booth out at the fest, and we are excited to share those photos and videos! You can view them in the previous links.

We hope you enjoyed the giveaways, delicious Kona Ice, the glitter mobile, vendors, and STEM activities. And we send a big congratulations to the teachers of Dr. King Charter School, who showed up in the most creative shirt and won our contest for free breakfast for them and their colleagues!

We’re seeing some great photos already on social media at #NOLATeacherfest24. We’d love to see more! Please continue to tag us on Facebook (@NewSchoolforNewOrleans) and Instagram (@newschoolsnola)!

We’re so grateful to our sponsors who stepped up to support this great event alongside Allstate Sugar Bowl and the College Football Playoff Foundation–Pro Bono Publico, Entergy, Booth Bricker Foundation, AlignED NOLA, GNO, Inc., United Way of Southeast Louisiana, and Raising Cane’s.

Thanks to those of you who submitted your feedback survey–we were thrilled to see such a positive response.
