Rockford, Ill. (WTVO)—

This week is National Teacher Appreciation Week, and we love checking in with our local teachers to see all of the amazing work they’re doing. Tonight, we’re checking in on Belvidere Central Middle School math teacher Laura Stites. Laura tells us that from a very young age she was drawn to math, and it has always been her favorite subject. She not only teaches math, but she also coaches the Scholastic Bowl team at Belvidere North and Belvidere Central Jr. Make sure to tune in for our next teacher next week!
