Congratulations to 97ZOKs newest Teacher Of The Week, Ms. Kelsey Ness from the brand new Constance Lane Elementary School in Rockford.

During her appearance on The Steve Shannon Show, she said that one of her favorite parts of being a teacher at Rockford's new Constance Lane Elementary is "that new school smell." As a 97ZOK Teacher Of The Week, Kelsey won beautiful flowers from Broadway Florist, a huge bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes and a gift certificate from Oriental Trading Company.

Ms. Ness was nominated by 'a grateful parent', and they wrote:

Ms Ness Is a wonderful teacher, she is beyond friendly and makes sure the kids are always in good hands. She’s been keeping them busy with the technology issue and keeps them learning. My son has said nothing but good things when he comes home (which is out of the ordinary for him) She makes him feel comfortable since he is shy and of course the craziness of a brand new school. We are so excited for the rest of the year and all she can provide for the kids.
