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 Jayme Skay a teacher at South East Junior High in Iowa City! He is this week’s ‘Teacher of the Week!’ Jayme was nominated by Amanda Coiner and this is her entry:

"I would like to nominate Mr. Skay from South East Junior high in Iowa City. My son talks about him all the time. He holds kids to a high standard by challenging them in his math classes. My son's confidence has excelled in math. Mr. Skay personally bought all the kids protractors and said they could pay him back after they make their 1st million. I can't thank him enough for building my son's confidence and love for math! Mr. Skay is also the track coach. My son hates running with a passion, but because he is the coach many kids go out for track. He is incredible!"

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