The 14-year classroom veteran was surprised with the award—described as the “Oscars of Teaching”—during a school assembly Wednesday attended by the Louisiana Education Superintendent John White and Milken Educator Awards founder Lowell Milken.

The award comes with a $25,000 cash prize that recipients can use however they choose.
