I can't believe it, but we have finally arrived at the final Friday for our 'Teacher of the Week' award! Our last honoree for the 2018-2019 school year is Virginia Utsinger, a special education teacher at FMI in Marion. She was nominated by Dallas and Chiara Spinler, and this was their entry:

"On March 25th, our 10-year-old son had a seizure at school. Mrs. Utsinger, who knows our son through the special education program, instantly knew something was wrong. She stayed by his side THROUGH EVERYTHING, including the ambulance ride to mercy. She went above and beyond, and we are so grateful!"

For doing such a wonderful job, Virginia will be receiving a free massage or facial from Massage Heights, plus $25 gift cards from Wild Hogs and Half Price Books!

If you know an amazing teacher here in Eastern Iowa, keep them in mind for the 2019-2020 school year! We will bring back 'Teacher of the Week' starting in September.
