PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) -

The work of a second grade teacher from Greene County Tech Elementary School did not go unrecognized.

Mrs. Holly Todd received over 20 nomination letters from her students from the last school year and, in each of them, descriptions on how Todd left a lasting impact on their lives.

Region 8 News surprised Todd in class to celebrate her accomplishment of becoming our September Teacher of the Month.

Her former students returned to her classroom to congratulate her as well.

"That was really sweet. That was a great group of kids. You get them so far and send them on and it's really great to see them come back," Todd said about the group.

Todd has been teaching for 25 years, so she knows a thing or two about helping kids advance.

Outside of the scheduled classwork, she said she helps students by teaching them to abide by the class promise to build each other up.

"I'm going to teach them how to comprehend. I'm going to go over strategies. But, I really want them to feel good about themselves. To know that if they try, they can do anything and that I'll always believe in them," Todd said.

Todd said the surprise was very humbling; but, for her, she's just doing her job.
