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, and they're still doing 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 with their homework! 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 Beckville High School teacher Becky Alfaro!

Becky was nominated by one proud mama - Misty McKnight.  Misty has seen her very own children learn and thrive with Mrs. Alfaro's instruction and care.  As far as Misty is concerned, this teacher has the divine gift of patience!  Here's what she had to say:

I am nominating Mrs. Becky Parks Alfaro because she is definitely a GEM of a teacher. She has been teaching since 1988!! She is dedicated to her students individual success. She has taught 7 of my 8 children over the last 7 years and most likely will teach the 8th!! I have had MANY years of experiencing FIRST hand her patience and drive to push each student to excel in her classroom.

Congratulations, Becky Alfaro - 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 and a dozen delicious Beignets from PJ's Coffee in Bossier City!

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