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 Keithville Elementary's Jessica Tran!

Tiffany was nominated by her loving husband Tommy Tran. Tommy thinks the world of his wife and her amazing teaching skills, and had this to say about her:

I am the lucky husband of the best 3rd grade teacher in the world, my wife Jessica Tran. She is the hardest working elementary teacher I know. She spends endless hours almost every single night writing lesson plans and getting stuff done for her classroom so that her kids can have a great learning experience everyday, and that's on top of the long hours she puts in during school. She gets up to get herself ready at 5:30 AM Monday - Friday, drives 30 minutes to Keithville from Shreveport, and most days doesn't get home until around 6-7:00 PM. Despite having to work these long hours without the proper salary to match it, she LOVES what she do and she LOVES her kids. I have never heard her complain even once about the things she has to do for her kids. This lovely lady of mine deserves more than just "Teacher of the Week", she is also the greatest mom in the world and the love of my life!

Congratulations, Jessica Tran - 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!
