Sixth Ward Elementary
Teacher of the Year!
LaCria Martin’s route to teaching began as a student in Mrs. Brenda Mitchell’s class. She aspired to be an Amazing teacher filling more roles than her job title requires: such as role model, advisor, and protector.
As a teacher she strives to facilitate engaging learning, meeting each scholar where they are educationally and building them up to where they need to be. Teaching is a privilege, and opportunity and LaCria is blessed to be able to educate in the parish in which she has been raised and educated.
LaCria Martin, M.Ed. earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education as well as a Master’s of Elementary Ed. from Southern University of Baton Rouge. She is currently a First Grade teacher and no matter what grade level that she will teach or tutor , her goal is to work hard, teach amazingly, and motivate her scholars because of her actions to one day be an educator.
On Thursday, November 17, 2016, Sixth Ward Elementary School hosted its annual School Science Fair. Students from 1st-6th grade were eligible to participate in this event. Students conducted research and performed experiments to learn about various science topics! Congratulations to all of the students from SWES who participated in this event, and especially to those students who placed and won in the fair. The faculty and staff of SWES would like to extend a special “Thank You” to Motiva and the St. James Parish Government Office that sent people to judge projects at our fair.

The week of October 2-8 marked National 4H Week across the state of Louisiana. At our school, Sixth Ward Elementary, we used our “superpower” to show our 4H pride!
