Chica & The Bald Guy’s Teacher of the Week is Jenny Spearman
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 Waskom Middle School Science Teacher Jenny Spearman!
Jenny was nominated by her adoring husband, Nick Brown. Nick has seen his wife's dedication and passion from a unique perspective. To say that he admires and adores her is a bit of an understatement. Here's what he had to say:
Jenny teaches 6th grade science at Waskom middle school. She is passionate at science and loves trying new things with her students. One thing that sets Jenny apart from other teachers is that she teaches her students more than just science. She encourages her students to be better humans. Every week she challenges her students to go do something great for someone. It can be small things like hold a door open, help family around or what they feel on their heart. Every Monday, she asks them to write down what they did. She is amazed every Monday with things her students do. Some of the biggest things her students have done are: helping elderly take groceries to car, helping elderly who have fallen and many others. Every day before the students leave her class, she tells them to “Go be great”. On top of all this, Jenny is the district athletic trainer for the school district. She takes care of all sports injuries from 7-12th. She is at practices and games. She helps student athletes do physical therapy, help set up doctors appointments and so much more. She just cares about all students. My wife is beyond amazing because I know I would never ever do all she does.
Congratulations, Jenny Spearman - 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!
