Chica & The Bald Guy’s Teacher of the Week is Christy Jorgensen
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 Keithville Elementary/Middle School Teacher Christy Jorgensen!
Christy was nominated by proud parent Amanda Blake. Amanda has seen the transformative powers of this amazing teacher's dedication first hand through her own daughter. Here's what she had to say:
Her students and parents call her Mrs J she definitely deserves teacher of the week cause she is the greatest teacher my son has ever had his reading level was at kindergarten level at the beginning of the year but with her hard work to work one on one everyday and working in an hour and a half one on one every day with a reading specialist she now has him at 2nd grade reading level she's a amazing teacher who truly cares for each of her students and does whatever she can to help them all reach their full academic potential she's definitely the teacher of the week
Congratulations, Christy Jorgensen - 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!
