Today we surprised Chipeta Elementary School's Adam Hernandez as we named him December's Village Inn's teacher of the month.

Mr. Hernandez, or as he's known to his students, Mr. H, had no idea we were coming and was overcome with joy when we delivered his prizes. In addition, his entire class of fifth-graders were just as surprised.

The students didn't know what we were there for at first, but upon announcing that Mr. H was the teacher of the month they said things like, "Are you going to take us to Spin City?" and "I voted for you, Mr. H!"

Mr. H's prizes include a $50 gift card to Village Inn, a $50 Visa gift card from Farmers Insurance the Josh DeWitt Agency, a $20 Starbucks gift card, an insulated tumbler from Carville's Automart, a one-hour massage from Rimrock Wellness, a goodie basket from All Copy Products, a fresh fruit bouquet from Willy's Wild Carvings, a skating party for his class at Spin City and a pizza party from the Garlic Knot.

If there's a teacher in your child's life that they're especially fond of, you can nominate them today right here.
