Congrats to the latest 97ZOK Teacher of the Week, Mrs. Fager from Donald C. Parker Early Education Center.

Fager was nominated by a mother of one of her students, Jessica Bennehoff.

I nominate Mrs. Fager for teacher of the week because she is not just a teacher, she is a caring, loving person who loves each one of her students as their own.

My son has asthma and was sent home from school and missed the following day. She emailed me after hours to check on him and said that she would watch him like he was her own when he returned to school. She shows compassion and love and deserves this award.

I’m so glad my son has her for his first school experience. She has made it so pleasant and he adores her.

Fager won flowers from Broadway Florist, a cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes and a gift certificate from Oriental Trading Company.
