A brand new Teacher Of The Week was announced this morning on The Steve Shannon Show.

Congratulations to Mrs. Whitekar from Lewis Lemon School in Rockford, 97ZOK's newest Teacher Of The Week. Mrs. Whitekar won flowers from Broadway Florist and a bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes.

She was nominated by her co-worker, Tracy Rolander.

Tracy writes:

Mrs. Whitekar is my coworker.  We make up part of the 5th-grade team.  I am also a brand new teacher, and I know that I can count on Mrs. Whitekar to make me laugh when I am feeling down or struggling with ideas.  She is always there to help the team whenever possible.  I have seen her go above and beyond to meet the needs of the students in her classroom or to help out a coworker.

She is an amazing educator who is making a difference in our school by just being who she is naturally.  I aspire to be like her when I grow up!
