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.

Let's face it - as parents, we owe these amazing people a lot!  They continue to overcome obstacles to make sure our kids get a quality education.  Just look at the last year - we went from cancelling school to distance learning to hybrid learning back to face-to-face instruction all in the span of a year.  We just expected these teachers to change with the times, and they did!  You have to love what you do if you are a teacher!

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 Pathways in Education Teacher Mrs. Joan!

Mrs. Joan was nominated by proud parent and huge fan Madelyne Cox.  Madelyne claims that daughter's amazing academic trajectory has been guided by this amazing teacher since the very first day of High School.  Here's what she has had to say about her favorite teacher:

Mrs. Joan has been an amazing instructor ever since my daughter began her high school career at Pathways. Mrs. Joan has worked one on one with Rajah on a regular basis to keep her on track with each and every subject. Not only has Mrs. Joan assisted Rajah on campus, she has also gone out of her way to schedule appointments over the phone to assist with difficult assignments. With all this extra help from such a wonderful educator, Rajah is set to graduate at the start of 2022. This is about a year earlier than she would have graduated.

Congratulations, Mrs. Joan - 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 and a dozen delicious Beignets from PJ's Coffee in Bossier City!

Nominate the most amazing teacher you know for next week's Teacher of the Week Award!
