We wanted to end our last Teacher of the Month delivery for the school year with a grande finale. The Principal and students over at Tope Elementary School helped us do exactly that. We all gathered in the main office and then together, walked across the playground for our big finale.

Starting with the Principal, we bust open the teacher's the door, filed in one by one and yelled 'surprise!.' Teacher of the Month Gabriella Hildreth at Tope Elementary was surprised - to say the least.

She not only had the class that was already in her classroom but now she's got a whole bunch of her previous students too. And the Principal, other teachers and the Mix 104.3 crew.

It makes me so happy so make our Grand Valley teachers happy. They work so hard and deserve to be appreciated and celebrated. Nominate your teacher for Teacher of the Month below.
