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 Woodlawn Highschool Teacher Marcuz Johnson!

Marcuz was by Jerimy Johnson.  Jerimy is most impressed by Coach Johnson's tough-love approach and his focus on helping others focus on success.  Here's what he had to say:

Marcuz is an amazing and passionate educator, with an unorthodox way of reaching the children he’s entrusted to educate. He is open minded and innovative, firm but fair. Aside from being a leader in the classroom he also coaches the schools basket ball teams, he lead the team to the semi finals. Marcuz is a mentor and born leader who all should emulate. His passion for educating the youth transcends the classroom, he believes in success in all aspect of life, being a well rounded student and human being.

Congratulations, Marcuz Johnson - 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!
