Lakeside Shopping Center Honors A+ Teachers at Summer Wine Down Event


Sip, shop & celebrate back to school on Thursday, July 25 at Lakeside Shopping Center as we celebrate the start of a new school year!

If you haven’t already heard, Lakeside Shopping Center and St. Charles Avenue partnered to recognize extraordinary teachers in the New Orleans area who go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of their students. We are now proud to announce the winners of the A+ Back to School Makeover Contest! It was a tough decision as we received nominations for deserving teachers from 37 different schools in Jefferson, Orleans, St. Tammany, St. John the Baptist, St. Charles and St. Bernard Parishes. From those nominations the following exceptional teachers were selected:

Jeannine Thibodeaux, 3rd grade teacher at St. Benilde School

Erica Rosher, high school teacher at Kenner Discovery

Ravin Edwards, 9th grade teacher at John Ehret High School
