Named the Region IV LACUE Elementary Teacher of the Year
Recently it was announced that Loei Porter, a teacher at Dozier Elementary won the Region IV LACUE
(Louisiana Association of Computer Using Educators)
Elementary Teacher of the Year award.
Each year LACUE, the state's technology association,
honors teachers and leaders with awards in each region,
and at the state level.
At the Annual Conference in New Orleans in December, all
regional winners will be recognized. From there, a state
winner will be named for each category.
Lori Gunter Porter (a 4th-grade teacher at Dozier
Elementary), just received word that she was named the
Region IV LACUE Elementary Teacher of the Year. (LACUE
is the Louisiana Association of Computer Using
Educators). She was nominated by our Vermilion Parish
Superintendent Jerome Puyau earlier this fall. Mrs. Lori
is the epitome of what a technology-based teacher should
breathes life into Social Studies, Science and Math
lessons daily using computers, iPads, cameras, video
cameras and props, Google programs, her Promethean
Board, ActivSlate and so much more day in and day out.
To top it off, she creates and writes her amazing
project-based lesson plans that mesh the curriculum with
technology tools when those are not readily available.
She never takes the easy way out. If it isn't there, she
creates them! She is one of the most versatile teachers
in Vermilion Parish in terms of implementing technology
lessons using a multitude of tools every day. Not only
does she focus on meshing the curriculum with these
resources, but goes above and beyond in sharing her
ideas and better yet, expertise, not only with Dozier
Elementary educators but with other district teachers,
as well. Congrats Mrs. Lori! Dozier Elementary and the
Erath community are so proud of you! Please help us
congratulate Mrs. Lori! She now moves to the state
