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 Mooretown elementary Teacher Dawn Jordan!

Dawn was nominated by her best friend, Kayle Murray - who explained that Mrs. Jordan's love for the littlest of students in an incredible thing to behold.  Kayle has been witness to her friends incredible passion for teaching for years, here's what she had to say about her bestie:

Dawn Jordan is like a second mom to me , she is the most kindhearted women I’ve met. She goes above and beyond for her students and above and beyond for the teachers she works with. She teaches pre-K special needs children and they’re the sweetest little kids and they all love her. She leave the biggest impact on the kids she teaches I see all the time where parents of kids she taught when they were babies who are now 22 and older stop and tell her they miss her and how much she impacted their babies lives. She’s not only an amazing educator she’s An amazing friend. She deserves this more than anyone I know, I love her to pieces and I’m so thankful for all she does for her kids

Congratulations, Dawn Jordan - 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!
