East Texas teachers surprised with gifts

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Some East Texas teachers were caught off-guard at their first faculty meeting today. But don't worry, they weren't in any trouble. They actually received gifts.

Walmart on Troup Highway decided to give the teachers a helping hand this year by presenting five lucky winners at Owen's Elementary with gift cards to Walmart.

Each teacher received one gift card worth one hundred dollars.

The money is to help the teachers with unexpected classroom expenses.

Walmart voted on which schools would receive the gift cards. Chapel Hill Elementary was also a winner and five teachers from that school will be surprised with gift cards in the near future.
