In the spring of 2019, the process began to select the Teacher of the Year for the Georgia Independent School Association. All 164 GISA schools were invited to nominate candidates in the lower school, middle school, and upper school categories. The Head of School, along with other school personnel, submitted letters of recommendation, and the nominees were asked to write an essay on the topic, “What Teaching Means to Me.” After a review of the nominees, the finalists participated in an interview process, and the winners were announced at the GISA Annual Conference on November 4, 2019.
Loganville Christian School has the distinct privilege of being home to the lower school Teacher of the Year for 2019, Mrs. Erika Lambert. Now in her 16th year of teaching (11 at LCA), the number of students whose lives she has influenced is great. “It is an honor to be recognized as Teacher of the Year. I am thankful that God called me to teach and for allowing me to work with countless students, parents, and educators over the years," says Erika. Erika is an Upper Elementary Lead Teacher and currently a 5th grade homeroom teacher while teaching reading and vocabulary to 4th and 5th grade students. She also teaches in Journey, LCA’s lower school gifted program, is a tutor in LCA’s Barton program, and tutors other students in math and reading.
Erika loves music and singing. She is a member of the LCA Worship Band and leads worship during US Chapel, faculty and staff meetings, and family worship nights. She assists with the lower school Christmas production by working with the soloists and ensembles to help prepare them for their performance.
Loganville Christian Academy extends our warmest congratulations to Mrs. Erika Lambert for this high honor. #wearelca
