Local Teacher Gets A Surprise At Work

A local teacher got a big surprise during class Thursday.

Denise Lewis was named this month's Thank A Teacher winner from Life 96.5 and Verne Eide Motorcars.

Lewis has been teaching for 28 years. She currently helps kids at JFK and Discovery Elementary schools.

"You know I try my best. I love my children,. I've been teaching special needs for years and years. That's been where my heart is. They have a lot to give back to me. As much as I give to them, and try to help them," said Lewis. 

Lewis received a $500 Visa gift card, school supplies, lunch for her and her students, an ice cream party and a Keurig coffee maker.
