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

Congratulations to Christy Ness, a teacher at Novak Elementary in Marion! She is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!” She was nominated by Caleb Perez, and here’s what they had to say:

"She was a really good teacher for my daughter in preschool. She's a new teacher, but does a great job and works with parents really well for the betterment of the child!"

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