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 being tentatively planned for the near future, and distance learning entering the picture as well - 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 Plantation Park Elementary School Teacher Brandi Hanks!

Brandi was nominated by Brittany Thomas.  Brittany's daughter had the pleasure of being in Mrs. Hanks class and had an awesome learning experience.  The way this teacher goes above and beyond with passion caring for her kids is what really put her over the top!  Here's what Brittany had to say:

My daughter Maliyah has been in Mrs. hanks class since 1st grade and is now in third...Mrs.Hanks loves her students so much and is so passionate about teaching that she moved up with them. We love Mrs Hanks! She always has a smile on her face and makes learning fun!

Congratulations, Brandi Hanks - 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!
