The kids are finally back in school, which means the return of the KHAK 'Teacher of the Week' award! Every Friday morning at around 8:20, we select an amazing teacher from right here in Eastern Iowa to win some awesome prizes and get some much-deserved recognition. Our very first winner for the school year is Molly Wickham, a 2nd-grade teacher at Wilkins Elementary in Marion!

Molly was nominated by Brent Bundy and his entry reads:

"She makes us smile every day and is my favorite. She is so fun and makes my days rock!"

For winning, Molly will receive a massage or facial from Massage Heights in Cedar Rapids and Coralville, and $25 gift cards from Kathy's Pies and Wild Hogs Saloon & Eatery!

Do you know any fantastic educators here in the Corridor? Make sure you get them nominated for 'Teacher of the Week' HEREOnce they're nominated, they will be eligible to win throughout the entire school year.
