At FirstLine we take a village approach to educating our students. Our staff is diverse across generations, ethnic groups, and life experiences.
The balance of veteran and new teachers leads to a dynamic mix of new ideas and experience-driven approaches.
We are committed to doing our part to ensure that all students in New Orleans receive an outstanding education. Interested in joining our village?


Big Chiefs are leaders- they reflect the values held most sacred to our network, show us how to be our best selves, and weave these values into the fabric of FirstLine.
Big Chief Awards are given out annually to employees who exemplify the network values.
Winners are nominated by their peers and voted on by a panel of judges. Find out what people said about our 2020 Big Chief Award Recipients.
