Congrats to 97ZOK's brand new teacher of the week, Mrs. Holcomb from Brookview Elementary School in Rockford.

Mrs. Holcomb was nominated by a student's parent Brenna Neiber.

Her letter reads -

Mrs. Holcolmb is not only a well-respected Kindergarten teacher at Brookview Elementary but also a kind person. My daughter was diagnosed with Influenza and was out of school for a week. During that time she was going to miss her class Valentine’s Day party and was disappointed about that. Unbeknownst to my husband and I, Mrs. Holcomb stopped by our home to personally dropped off our daughters Valentines goodies and see how she was feeling. This random act of kindness brought a huge smile to a 5 year olds face and she was able to read all of her Valentines cards and feel a part of the celebration that she missed. Thank you Mrs. Holcomb for going above and beyond the classroom and for thinking of us!

I also learned when I got to deliver Mrs. Holcomb that she actually visited SIX students who couldn't attend their Valentine's Day party. She's an incredible teacher who really deserved this title.

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