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 that exemplary teacher is Central Park elementary's Desara Cunningham!

Desara goes beyond the standard definition of a teacher - she loves all of her students and has no favorites. This 3 year educator is also the cheerleader coach, and that's not all.  According to her nomination, she has dedicated herself to making an impact on each and every student.

Congratulations, Desara Cunningham - 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!
