Teacher Gets $10,000 Surprise

What started as an average day for an East Texas Middle School teacher, changed in a matter of seconds. 

In front of screaming students, theatre and social studies teacher Delories Hill, was awarded a check for $10,000 as the grand prize in a national drawing. It was given by Horace Mann Insurance Company which specializes in insurance services for educators.

Her name drawn at random, the 20-year teacher says she never thought she'd be the big winner.

"I've been teaching 20 years, right around that. And it's always rewarding. I don't do it for the money, but in a way today I did! But... there's no better place to work than here at TISD."

TISD is also getting $10,000 from Horace Mann Insurance. That money will be put toward the programs or departments of Delories's choosing.
