CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) –A Caddo Parish School teacher has been recognized nationally to participate in a Washington, D.C. teacher development program.

Shreveport's Caddo Middle Magnet teacher, Jenny Gallant was chosen Tuesday to participate in the Bill of Rights Institute, a program for early career teachers.
