Chica & The Bald Guy’s Teacher of the Week is Windy Holbert
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 Walnut Hill Elementary School Teacher Windy Holbert!
Windy was nominated by her best friend Kasey Thomas. Kasey has seen her bestie's tireless dedication to education and how much she loves her students! Here's what she had to say:
She (Windy) is a 4th grade Science teacher that goes above and beyond for her students making sure they have what they need. Not only does she support her students academically but also emotionally even though we have to be socially distant. She cares for everyone of her students grades whether it is in her class or not. Always making sure they have adequate learning environment. If my child is sick she always checks on her to make sure she is ok. Never asks anyone for help but always helping others in every way possible. She has always been a great teacher throughout the years i have known her. Even when the kids were rough and a struggle I've still seen her achieve all the goals required and more. Shes all in all an amazing person and teacher. I know she will continue to prosper in everything she does or wants to do
Congratulations, Windy Holbert - 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 in Bossier City!
Nominate the most amazing teacher you know for next week's Teacher of the Week Award!
