Two named state teachers of year
State educators have named two Lincoln Parish teachers as among the top educators in the state.
They recognized Jenny Blalock of A.E. Phillips Laboratory School as the 2011 Elementary School Teacher of the Year late last month. They also recognized Ruston High School teacher Julie Stephenson as the 2011 High School Teacher of the Year. State officials honored both teachers, as well as several others, at the Cecil J. Picard Educator Excellence Symposium Celebration in Baton Rouge.
