Every week we honor another awesome teacher in the local area with our ‘Teacher of the Week’ award!

Congratulations to Heidi Noonan-Day, a professor at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls! Heidi is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!” She was nominated by Angela McCardle, and here’s what she had to say:

“As a lawyer, she tells every student if they ever need help, day or night, call her. She promotes random acts of kindness in everything she does, as well as participating and winning GISHWHES. Our future genuinely matters to her. Even after I graduated she still checks in with advice.”

For winning, Heidi will be receiving gift cards from Wild Hogs in Walford, Peck’s Flower Shop, Half Price Books, and Kathy’s Pies.
