Teacher of The Week is something very special here at 97ZOK. And now more than ever we are so happy we get to show teachers just how much they mean to our community and the world at large.

This week was a one-of-a-kind call we'll never forget. It's the first time we've ever done this and now just seemed like the right time.

Congratulations to the ENTIRE TEACHING STAFF at Lincoln Middle School.

They were nominated by Principal Garrigan and the letter reads -

As we are headed into National Teachers Week we thought about nominating a teacher for your Teacher of the week. We would love to nominate a teacher for teacher of the week, but then it became more evident ... we NEED to nominated the WHOLE TEAM of teachers at Lincoln Middle School. From the beginning of the year when we lost all technology due to a computer hack, they had to learn a different way to educating. Then, technology came back and they relearned teaching. Now this Corona Virus wipes out of the physical classroom. These teachers are Lincoln adapted for the third time this year and no one complained, they JUST DID!!! They worked hard at adaptation to make sure our students at Lincoln got the most out of this situation. We started as a team, adapted as a team and we would like to nominate them as a team.

We couldn't figure out to how to do a 60-way phone call, but Zoom was there to save the day. Here's how our surprise call with over 60 teachers and their principal went -

We sent a ton of goodies to Principal Garrigan to share with her staff when she can finally see everyone. Congrats again to the entire Lincoln Middle School Staff.

You can nominate your favorite teacher to be our next Teacher of the week here.
