Teacher Of The Year Gets $1000 Check

A $1,000 thanks to one East Texas teacher.  Tuesday, seventh grade language arts teacher Sheri Peery was surprised with a $1,000 check from Wal Mart, naming her their Teacher of the Year.  Sheri was nominated by her students and beat out dozens of other teachers for the award.  

She says, "this is an awesome award, I am so surprised, and so honored to have this award. We've worked so hard this year and just it's just an awesome surprise."

Sheri says she plans to use the money to buy more books for her classroom, and to help students attend more UIL competitions.
