Chica & The Bald Guy’s Teacher of the Week is Carrie McDonald
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 Bossier Elementary Kindergarten teacher Carrie McDonald!
Carrie was nominated by her daughter Hayley McDonald. Hayley has had a unique view of this amazing educator/mother. Here's what her proud daughter had to say:
I’m her daughter, but she does everything for her kids. She teaches kindergarten at Bossier Elementary and her kids love her. Last year she made sure all her kids had pajamas for polar express day, and she gets Christmas gifts for all of her kids as some of them don’t get Christmas. She loves her kids as if they were her own and she really deserves some more appreciation. She always goes above and beyond to make her kids happy and always finds way to make learning fun.
Congratulations, Carrie McDonald - 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!
