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

Congratulations to Lisa Meyers, a teacher at Prairie Point Middle School and Ninth Grade Academy in Cedar Rapids! She is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!’ She was nominated by Melanie Ironside, and here’s what she had to say:

“Mrs.Meyers doesn't give up on students. She makes sure everybody shows their true potential and she made a real impact on my life. I never thought I could do things she pushed me to do. She does things for students sometimes not even school related. She bought sweatshirts for a kid who couldn't afford them and she is very inspiring.”

For being an amazing teacher, Lisa will be receiving gift cards from Wild Hogs in Walford and Kathy’s Pies!
