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.

Let's face it - as parents, we owe these amazing people a lot!  They continue to overcome obstacles to make sure our kids get a quality education.  Just look at the last year - we went from cancelling school to distance learning to hybrid learning back to face-to-face instruction all in the span of a year.  We just expected these teachers to change with the times, and they did!  You have to love what you do if you are a teacher!

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 Loyola College Prep Teacher Arelis Soberal!

Arelis was nominated by huge fan (and sis) Katiria Santiago-Jefferson.  Katiria has seen her sister's dedication and love for teaching up-close and personal.  Here's what she had to say:

Arelis has been in love with teaching her whole life!  She puts in a lot of extra time (unpaid) to make sure her students get the most out of every lesson.  She totally deserves it - plus, she's my sister!

Congratulations, Arelis Sobera - 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 in Bossier City!

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