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 Ouachita Parish Teacher Melinda Murphy Williams!

Melinda was nominated by Lance Hendricks.  Lance is most impressed with Melinda's impressive ability to stay cool and positive no matter the stress level! Here's what he had to say about this amazing educator:

She’s amazing. Can handle the children great (ALL) of us, men & moms too! Stress & worry isn’t in her vocabulary. She’s a go-getter. Never tired, never, too busy, bummed, never seems over worked. Never complains about being under paid. Has another full time job the entire days of summertime. She loves candy, the lake, mermaids, teaching, dancing, having fun on a Friday at the ball field or the marina, with her friends! Coke is her favorite! Dixie is her dog! I wasn’t suppose to mention she loves cats, too! She enjoys poetry & scriptures. Her best friend is a mut named SLA and a sweet girl named, KraziKandi. She loves life & life loves her. Good Luck 2020-2021 MISSY POO-we love you!

Congratulations, Melinda Murphy Williams - 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!
