The three — Joy Watson, of Woodlawn Elementary; Andy Pizzo, of Sherwood Middle; and Daniel Eiland, of Woodlawn High — learned they had won the parishwide competition months ago so they could then compete in the state’s Teacher of the Year competition.

Semifinalists were announced in February. Statewide winners will be announced in July and honored then.
