Every week, Chica & the Bald Guy search the Shreveport/Bossier City area (commonly referred to as the SBC) for your favorite teacher. Every single person who chooses the teaching lifestyle does so knowing that they will most likely never get rich for it. The fearless men and women that face a class full (or more) of our kids day in and day out deserve much more than they get - especially now.

Teachers had to find some way to continue teaching our (and their own) kids, and they did it. Without knowing how, they figured it out. That is a bonafide miracle when you consider that a lot of us can't wrap our heads around it enough to help them! Now that classes are back in session, and adding distance learning to the mix - we're asking more from these teachers than ever.  That's why it's more important that ever that we recognize their passion and dedication.

It is in that spirit that we seek to recognize one educator a week who goes above and beyond the call of duty for her students! This week, the exemplary person we are recognizing as The Chica & The Bald Guy Teacher of the Week is Summerfield Elementary Teacher Amanda Roath!

Amanda was Nominated by nominated by Ashanti Houston.  Ashanti is the parent of one of the lucky kids that get to call Mrs. Roath their teacher.  Here's what she had to say about this amazing educator:

Our Husky passed away and our child (Austin) really took it hard and had a huge melt down at school. She's a great teacher and is the reason why our son has had straight As so far for the past two nine weeks but she took this situation a step further. I received a text about how he was crying and I instantly was hurt that I couldn't be there for him. So she stepped up held my child and consoled him for me. Well if that was enough she gave my son something so small that meant so much to our family.  She is an amazing woman of God and I appreciate what she and the kids did for our child. I pray that you find it in your heart to choose her for teacher of the week.

Congratulations, Amanda Roath - you are Chica & the Bald Guy's Teacher of the Week. Not only do you have our respect and admiration, you have also been awarded a $50 gift card good at Notini's restaurant!

Nominate the most amazing teacher you know for next week's Teacher of the Week Award!
