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 North Highlands Elementary Teacher Dianne Bonner!

Dianne was nominated by Jennifer Alexander.  Jennifer has seen Dianne's passion for teaching through the eyes of her daughter and is certainly impressed.  Here's what she had to say about this incredible educator:

I’m nominating Dianne Bonners for teacher of the week. Dianne was my daughter's teacher.  She is a special education teacher for students with autism, she teaches early childhood through 2nd grade, she also works for early steps to help children who are delayed. She goes above and beyond for her students. She is also in educational sabbatical learning more skills for children with autism. She is amazing and I love the passion that she has for what she does.

Congratulations, Dianne Bonner - 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!
