The Chica & The Bald Guy Teacher of the Week is Heather Starks
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 School Teacher Heather Starks!
Heather was nominated by her obviously impressed husband, John Starks. Here's what John had to say:
Heather is a 11th year 5th grade teacher at Central Park Elementary she cares deeply for her students and has had the pleasure of seeing whole families ( entire groups of siblings and cousins) come through her classroom. Many of these kids will call her their favorite proving this by returning to visit her year after year. She always puts the needs of " her kids " before her owne even going to the lengths of adopting one of her students from an abusive household. She is very involved in her school and surrounding community, 7 years as lead cheer coach, and commitie member in numerous organizations keeps her very busy in her off time. I believe that Heather Starks deserves to be recognized as teacher of the week especially because in her line of work, wonderful teachers like her get very little credit and credit is due for her. I am so proud of her and her dedication, but I am especially proud to call her my wife..
Congratulations, Heather Starks - 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!
