Every week we team up with Menard's to honor another awesome teacher in the local area with our ‘Teacher of the Week’ award!

Congratulations to Katie Connolly, a teacher at North Bend Elementary in North Liberty! She is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!’ Katie was nominated by Heather Johnson and this is her entry:

"Ms. Connolly is such a terrific kindergarten teacher. She is nice and compassionate to her students and spends quality time with them to help them learn. She makes it fun and interesting and understands children learn at different paces."

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