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

Congratulations to Phil Corkery, a teacher at North Linn Community School District in Coggon! He is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!’ He was nominated by Darci Rawson, and here’s what they had to say:

“Mr. Corkery is a great nominee for the special teacher contest because he isn't strict. He's fun, but also makes sure you get your work done. Phil is an amazing problem solver and will help you if you need it. If you don't understand something, he will relate the problem to something you know.”

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