The Louisiana Federation of Teachers is more than an organization. It is nearly 21,000 teachers and school employees who wake up every morning determined to make a difference in the lives of all the children in our schools. Those dedicated professionals, our members, are the heart and soul of the union.

They are the experts in their fields, and they have the education, expertise and certification required to provide the instruction and support our children deserve.
