2012-2013 "Dozier Teacher of the Year" Kay Lurry

"We Care"

Dozier Elementary recently announced Kay Lurry as the school’s 2012-13 “Teacher of the Year”. With Lurry’s family present, Principal Karla Toups successfully surprised her with the announcement at the school wide Dozier Elementary Christmas Musical on Friday, December 16, 2011.

Lurry is an educator at Dozier with more than two decades years of experience, all of which have been in 4th grade. She works with a team teacher Lori Porter and teaches two sections of ELA subjects at the Erath elementary school.

The 4th grade teacher obtained a bachelor's degree in education from NLU-(now ULM) in Monroe, LA, as well as a master's degree in education from NLU majoring in reading education, with a minor in psychology.

Lurry credits her mother as one reason she chose to teach. Lurry stated, "My mother was a librarian and I loved to see her work with children and develop their appreciation for reading through programs at the public library." She finished by saying "I hope that I can help my students develop a love for reading which will impact their education and their future."
