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 Herndon Magnet School teacher Michelle Weddleton!

Michelle was nominated by Marc Weddleton. Marc has seen Michelle's dedication and passion for teaching first hand.  He is bursting with pride over his wife's teaching skills, here's what he had to say:

Michelle is my wife and she is my favorite teacher. All she has ever wanted to do, since she was a child, is to become an elementary school teacher. I see how hard she works daily, and how much she cares about her students. She devotes so much time and always does extra work to ensure her students are getting a superior education. Bottom line: she loves her students and loves to teach!
Therefore, I nominate Mrs. Michelle Weddleton as my favorite teacher. A very special and dedicated teacher!

Congratulations, Michelle Weddleton - 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!
