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 North Caddo Elementary/Middle School Special Education Teacher Lori Smith!

Lori was nominated by Robert Smith.  Robert has seen first hand this educator's selfless dedication and was obviously impressed.  Here's what he had to say:

She has an amazing heart for the kids. She spends her free time finding crafts and games that her kids might enjoy. She is a teacher aid of early special education kids. She treats the kids like they are her own and make them feel like they are truly loved each and every day.

Congratulations, Lori Smith - 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!
