Chica & The Bald Guy’s Teacher of the Week is Christopher Vines
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! Let's not forget that dedication now that Summer Vacation has officially begun!
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 Louisiana Delta Community College Teacher Christopher Vines!
Christopher was nominated by former student, Angel DelRio - who has seen Mr. Vine transform time and time again to suit the individual student's needs. It's clear that Angel was not only personally affected by this super-educators powers of teaching, but waas there to bear witness of him doing it for others. Here's what he had to say:
I struggled greatly throughout highschool with my mental health, among other personal reasons. Whenever I decided to get my high school equivalency at LDCC, Mr. Chris was my teacher. What makes him different from any other teacher that I’ve ever had would have to be that he believed in me so much that I started believing in myself. Mr. Chris works with each of his students in a unique way, conforming to the style of learning that benefits them best. He is patient, kind, and determined to help his students succeed. I genuinely do not know where I would be without him! Thank you, Mr. Chris, for showing me that anything is possible and that learning can be a fun and uplifting experience.
Congratulations, Christopher Vines - 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!
