RICHLAND, Wash. - A fun start to the morning at Jefferson Elementary School in Richland. NBC Right Now and Kadlec Regional Medical Center representatives surprised a kindergarten teacher there with a big check worth $500.

Heather Hadler has been a teacher for about 15 years and a parent of a former student nominated her.

"I don't know. Kingergarten, getting things for our kids to do as much as they can, giving them experiences to learn about the world. So, just finding more things for them. " Hadler said when we asked what she'll spend the money on.

That's really the goal of this project; helping teachers teach without spending too much of their own money on school supplies.
