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 Booker T. Washington High School teacher Marandalous Holland!

Marandalous was nominated by Lynn Gill.  Lynn gushed about this teacher, preacher, and all around awesome guy!  This amazing educator obviously leaves an incredible impression on students, teachers, and just about everyone he meets.  Here what Lynn had to say:

Not only is he our Pastor, but we have seen him grow as a person who is unyielding when it comes to education. He loves to teach young people and it is evident because of the way he teach our Young people and shows them how to become successful at our church and in school. He always pushes us to become better day by day. He keeps our young people and parents informed of what is going on in our school systems. He leaves work and heads straight to the church to teach us. We have seen him grow his program from the ground up and he works hard at work to produce outstanding students who will pave the way for those who will come behind them. He works diligently in the school system to create an atmosphere where young people can come and be themselves but also be prepared for what is to come after they leave his classroom and graduate. We are proud to call him our pastor, but more so we are humble to be able to share him for the betterment of the students that he teaches.

Congratulations, Marandalous Holland - 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!
