Chica & The Bald Guy’s Teacher of the Week is Katie Causey!
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 back in session, and adding distance learning to the mix - 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 Kingston Elementary 2nd Grade Teacher Katie Causey!
Katie was Nominated by nominated by her husband, Kyle Causey. Kyle has had the honor of seeing Katie's passion for her kids in a way that few others do. He's obviously in awe of her hard work, dedication, and genuine love for teaching 2nd graders! Here's what he had to say about his wife and hero:
Katie is the hardest worker I know and although she is a great teacher of the curriculum, I find her true strength is her ability to create relationships with her students and parents. She teaches 2nd grade and she loves them like they are her own kids , always going the extra mile to help them be better. She believes in them so much! Her lasting impression continues year after year as she still has many of them stopping by her room to get their daily hugs and say good morning. I have no doubt that one day, she will will find that student whose life was changed because of her.
Congratulations, Katie Causey - 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!
