Teacher of The Week looks very different in 2021. The pandemic has changed the type of nomination letters we get for Teacher of The Week. This school year is filled with a whole bunch of humans who never thought they'd be a teacher. From grandparents, to siblings, a lot of family members are stepping up to help teach during the pandemic. One of those amazing people who's stepped up is Grandma Peggy from Dixon.

Big congratulations to Grandma Peggy our new Teacher of The Week. She was nominated by her daughter Jenna and the nomination letter reads -

I would LOVE to nominate my mom aka Grandma Peggy. My mom recently retired and has taken on being a teacher and full time Grandma to her 2 granddaughters. At the beginning of the 2020 school year my mom was teacher every other day and making sure that my kiddos got to school for their in day class. Let's talk about the eLearning side of things - My mom never missed a class and assignment or a zoom for either kids. She rocked it all! She was able to do drop offs and pickups and even taken the girls to dance. My husband and I couldn't have done this 2020-2021 school year without you! Now that the girls are in school five days a week - She is still here - Still making sure that they are dropped off or picked up on time. She has put herself second this year. This would mean the world to us if she was the teacher of the week! Mom - Thank you so much! We love you! Love Jenna, Cody, Kinley and Kylie

The phone call we got to make to Grandma Peggy was filled with so much joy and genuine surprise. We got to show just how much we appreciate our new Teacher of The Week by dropping off a delicious bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes and a beautiful floral arrangement from Broadway Florist.


Congrats again Grandma Peggy!
