Every week we team up with Menard's to honor another awesome teacher in the local area with our ‘Teacher of the Week’ award!

Madison Hamer

Congratulations to Nick Lang, a teacher at Coolidge Elementary in Cedar Rapids! He is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!’ Nick was nominated by Madison Hames and Jessica Lang and these are their entries:

"He is hardworking and driven! He always does what is right for the kids and is passionate about his job. He is caring & one of the best teachers I have met! I hope he can be rewarded for all of his hard work!" - Madison Hamer

"Mr. Lang is consistent, empathetic, and a true leader. He invests in every child that sits in his classroom. They come back years later, just to say hello; he still remembers them. He is a team player, constantly sitting on committees with his co-workers, and willing to take on IT issues. He's steadfast and hardworking. I know, because I see his loyalty to his students when at home with his family." - Jessica Lang

For being an amazing teacher, Nick will be receiving gift cards from Wild Hogs in Walford, Half-Price Books, and Kathy’s Pies!
