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.

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 teacher we are recognizing as The Chica & The Bald Guy Teacher of the Week is Ringgold's Castor High School Teacher Amber Williams!

Amber was nominated by Aubrie McCain.  Aubrie is one of Amber's closest friends, and because of that closeness - she has seen this amazing teacher do her thing up close.  To say that she is blown away by her friends dedication is an understatement!  Here's what she had to say:

I’m nominating Amber Williams for Teacher of the Week. Amber is one of my closest friends and the most selfless teacher I know. She goes above and beyond for her kids. She’s currently on a Beta trip, where, after a last minute snag, she offered to PAY THE BUS DRIVER HERSELF, so the trip didn’t get canceled for the students. And that’s just the most recent example of how she always goes above and beyond. Amber teaches high school English, but she is so much more than that to the students. They all know they can trust her and come to her with any problems. She organizes multiple clubs and extracurricular activities. She makes sure that students are involved and engaged, and that their education goes beyond the classroom. She is just an amazing person and that reflects in her passion for education.

Plus… she has never been to Notini's and we really have to change that.

Congratulations, Amber 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!

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