Panelist Bio


Joyce Haynes
President of the Louisiana Association of Educators

Joyce Haynes has served as the President of the Louisiana Association of Educators for three years.
She brings the wisdom of a thirty-six year veteran of the public education system with her. She has experience as a Teacher’s Assistant, Classroom Teacher of 6th and 8th Grade Social Studies, and was voted Outstanding Educator in 1983. She is a statewide trainer for new teachers, mentors, and assessors and a board member of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). She also serves as a trustee for District 6 of the Teachers Retirement System of Louisiana (TRSL).

Joyce Haynes grew up in Opelousas, LA and graduated from J. S. Clark High School. Her distinguished education includes, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from the ULL, a Master of Arts degree in Education from LSU, and she has earned a “Thirty Plus” distinction from Southern University.

Ms. Haynes has exhibited a staunch commitment to advocacy. On the local level she has worked with the St. Landry Association of Educators and held many positions including President of that organization. On the state level, she has worked with the Louisiana Association of Educators for many years serving as a delegate to LAE Conventions, and holding many board positions, including the current presidency of LAE since 2007. On the national level, she has served on the NEA Board of Directors, a delegate to NEA Conventions, and has served on numerous education-excellence initiative committees.

Today, Ms. Haynes is very active in legislative action and can be found lobbying legislators, speaking on behalf of the Louisiana’s public education system and fighting for educational agendas at the capital. With the desire, experience, and vision to lead, she advocates for all children in Louisiana.

Current Topic


     02/17 - Black & the Blue

What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve?
Last year’s shooting of an African-American male in Baton Rouge by two white police officers re-ignited a national debate on how law enforcement interacts with minority communities. Nationwide demonstrations were ultimately marred by the targeted ambush of 12 white officers in Dallas and the killing of three members of law enforcement in Baton Rouge. What can be done to improve trust among the police and the public they serve? How can Louisiana’s Capital City productively move beyond these events? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on a special town hall edition, “Black & the Blue” Wednesday, February 22 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Monday, February 20)
