A Lafayette woman and former teacher is announcing her candidacy for Lafayette Parish School Board District 7.
Eva Green made the announcement Monday. She is a retired teacher from the Lafayette and Vermillion school parishes. Green taught in those parishes for 28 years.
Green believes that it takes three things to make education work: children who benefit from the education they receive, parents who feel secure that their children are getting the best possible education in the best possible schools, and teachers who feel valued in their job.
