Congrats to 97ZOK's brand new Teacher of the Week, Mrs. Sampe from Beloit Turner Middle School.

Mrs. Sampe was nominated by Courtney Nelson, saying:

Mrs. Sampe is THE MOST amazing teachers that you will ever meet. She is one of the most kind, sweet, intuitive, intelligent, influential, and inspiring people that you will ever meet. She has been so much of an inspiration to the education that I get at school.

She has taught me not only what it means to be a student... but what it means to be a leader. Not only that, but she has inspired my hopes and desires to pursue the career of a criminal defense attorney. Furthermore, she is one of the greatest women in my life, she has always been there for me with both educational and personal issues, no matter how exhausting and hard they may have been. Also, Mrs. Sampe influenced me to get good grades, and try and achieve my very "far out" dream, of going to Harvard Law. She also has been a very matriarchal figure in my life and for that I am forever in debt of her.

Due to the aforementioned Mrs. Sampe should be nominated teacher of the week because she has made my life SO MUCH BETTER, her classroom is like a home to me, so let me pay the rent by nominating her teacher of the week!

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