Happy Texas Teachers Were Surprised with a $500 Check [WATCH]

By  | 

The Corsicana Independent School District live-streamed an assembly on Monday so viewers could share in the excitement with staff and teachers who each received a $500 check for a job well done.

This unexpected announcement was met with a standing ovation and cheers from district employees who are anticipating the new school year to start soon on August 22.

The audience had no idea that the bonus was coming, but lately, the Corsicana school board has been exercising their generosity muscles. For full-time employees and bus drivers, the district recently began covering all premiums for health insurance.

The Facebook reactions on the video posted on Monday mimic the celebration in the auditorium. One commenter, Morgan Holt Woeller, wrote, “I don’t work for CISD but I am from Corsicana and worked in education for 9 years. This announcement and reaction from staff brought tears to my eyes! What an amazing, thoughtful, motivating surprise for the staff of CISD! Simply incredible CISD administration and school board!!”

Watch the video to see the surprise. And remember to let any teachers in your life know how much you appreciate them, even if you can’t extend a $500 check their way.
