What a blast it was visiting Lindsey West at Rockford Career College to congratulate her for being our newest Teacher Of The Week. 


Such a fun delivery to Lindsey's classroom with a cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes, a bouquet from Broadway Florist and a gift certificate from Oriental Trading Company.

Lindsey prepares students for careers as medical assistants and other job in the medical field. The day Steve Shannon arrived happened to be a day they were developing their skills working with newborn babies.


Lindsey was nominated for 'Teacher of the Week' by two of her students, Katie Cunningham and Alexis Mischung, they write:

We nominate our teacher, Lindsey West, to be teacher of the week. She treats all of us students like we are her kids. She is always there for us and makes sure we understand the material being taught. Even though we are in college, it is super helpful to have her because she gets to know her students on a personal level so she is able to help each of us in a different way that we can relate to.

Through all our years of schooling we have never had a teacher like Mrs. West. She is truly one of a kind. If it wasn't for her I would have definitely dropped out of school by now but she knows what we are worth and pushes us every day to do our best and be our best. I haven't heard of college professors being nominated but at this point in my life, she is my teacher and one of the best I've ever had.
