Best Teacher / Professor

Frank Rineck (McDonell Central Catholic High School, Chippewa Falls) was voted as the best teacher/professor in this year’s poll, as the vinyl-loving, Beach Boys jamming, and earring-rocking teacher is already making an impact in Chippewa Falls. Colleen Chmelik (Altoona Middle School) was voted into second place, showing a true love for teaching never leaves you. Readers voted NHS favorite Andrew Patrie (Eau Claire North High School) into third place, staking his claim as the king of the Huskie English department. –Parker Reed
