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 North Caddo Magnet High school's Mary Irvin!

Mary was nominated by her adoring daughter Rachel Irvin. Rachel looks up to her mom and obviously thinks the world of this dedicated teacher and incredible role model.  Rachel had this to say:

This is my mother! She teaches special needs and has for about 14 years.  Her students are like family and she goes above and beyond the call of duty.  Most of her kids can’t afford much she makes sure they have the items they need to be successful in school.  She always has a smile on her face and always wants to help you no matter the problem or the day!

Congratulations, Mary Irvin - 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 and a free King Cake from Lilah's!

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