Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - One local teacher got quite the surprise on Tuesday and it's fair to say her day was probably made better.

Kara McKone, a teacher at Windemere Park Charter Academy in Lansing received a $1,000 gift Tuesday.

The money came from the "Day Made Better" classroom surprise program, hosted by Office Max. The company awards 1,000 teachers across the country with a classroom supply gift.

"You know we work hard, try to do out best, but, this is going to help me out a little bit, but i really think it's going to benefit my students the most," said McKone

McKone was nominated for the award by the principal of the school for her catchy behavior and demeanor in the classroom.
