Don Halquist, better known as Dr. D, was recently honored as the STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week on Thursday, May 6.

The second-grade teacher at Salish Coast Elementary school was nominated in the local radio contest by student Joy Quinn and her mother.

“I love watching kids transform over the course of our time together and their excitement about learning,” Dr. D responded when asked what he likes best about teaching.

“It’s important to have fun when we are learning,” he added.

Dr. D. received a personalized plaque from Trophies2Go.co along with a check for $101.50 from STAR 101.5 and the Washington State Potato Commission.
