Why Natchitoches

Erica James, NJH

This is my first year teaching in Natchitoches Parish and it has been nothing but amazing! The friendships I have made with my co-teachers I would not trade it for the world. Being able to teach in the same parish that helped me excel in my education is an honor.

Teaching is a career to be proud of, and teaching at NCHS is a gift. Teachers love and care about each other. We are a family! I could not work at a school where there was not this amazing sense of community that we have here.
