Elise Frederic, You're a LA Milken EducatorLakeside Primary School | Prairieville, LA | Jan 24, 2023
Milken Educator Awards Founder Lowell Milken and Lakeside Primary School Principal Laurent Thomas join Elise Frederic in her first grade classroom as students get a closer look at the giant $25,000 check. Elise's laser focus on literacy delivers in spades — in 2021-22, more than 90% of her students reached mastery on district benchmark assessments in ELA, and 70% achieved mastery in math. Colleagues have adopted many of her literacy strategies, seeing significant growth across Lakeside’s early grades as a result.
