Congratulations to our newest Teacher of the Week, Mrs. Kennedy from Galapagos Charter School in Rockford.

We hooked up Mrs. Kennedy with beautiful flowers from Broadway Florist and delicious cupcakes from Sugarjones.

The winning nomination came from Sheba Gardner, Sheba writes:

I believe Mrs. Kennedy should be Teacher of the Week because she is truly amazing. She is very committed, never missing any days. She stays late almost every day so she can set her class up with success. She challenges her scholars to do and be their best. My daughter is in her class and she struggled with math. Because of Mrs. Kennedy's push she now has a 100% in her math. She is passionate about her work. She even teaches her scholars life skills. For example, each week the scholars are able to apply for a new job in their classroom. Or even how to problem solve when there is a confrontations among the children. As a parent, you want your child to have the best of the best and I know my daughter has the best with her.
