Hello! I would like to welcome you to the Louisiana School for the Deaf and a brand new school year. As we begin this 2016-2017 school year, my focus will be to provide all staff with the tools and supports necessary to do an excellent job, as well as to provide our students with the teachers, learning opportunities, and life experiences that enable them to reach their potential and live well. This school year, our focus and theme will be “Striving for Excellence”. That as a whole, we work together striving for excellence for ourselves, individually – for the betterment of our school – and most importantly the real reason any of us is here . . . . for the children parents have entrusted to us to educate.
