Teacher of the Month

totmCongratulations  to our newest Teacher of the Month, Mrs. Amy Maggio! Mrs. Amy stays excited about teaching and is always willing to try something new! She does a wonderful job  preparing our upper elementary students for the “big move” across the hall, and you can frequently find previous students back for a quick hug. She always has a positive outlook and demeanor which carries over to her students. We are so fortunate to have her at Bayou Academy. Mrs. Amy is teaching 5th and 6th grade Math and Spelling this year - and her students absolutely adore her! Thank you for all you do, Mrs. Amy! We appreciate you! 

Verse of the Week
