Finley Teacher Awarded Classroom Makeover

Posted: Updated:

NBCRightNow.com. -- NBC Right Now surprised one special teacher at Finley Elementary School Thursday.

First grade teacher Elaine Hagen says she was shocked to see a $500 check from Kadlec Health Systems during a special assembly today. It's all part of our Classroom Makeover Program.
 
Hagen says after 37 years, she still loves showing up to work every day.

"I love teaching because I get to see these beautiful young children every day and I still get teary eyed when somebody hasn't read, and I'm thinking it's not going to happen, and then one day it does," she said 
     
Hagen says she will use the money for science materials and books. If you would like to nominate a teacher, look for the Classroom Makeover Icon under the Community tab on our homepage.
