Teacher is honored with a new car

LAS VEGAS - In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, Findlay Automotive and Silver State Schools Credit Union awarded a brand new car to a very deserving educator.

While educators have been celebrating all week, the teacher didn't find out about the car until Friday.

Station Casinos gave every teacher a free buffet voucher, but one person did get a special gift today. Third grade teacher Claudia Rosenberger calls it a blessing.

More than 100 teachers were nominated this year by their principals to win a brand new Chevy Sonic.
Principals chose teachers based on being a high achieving dedicated educator and their transportation needs. Ms. Rosenberger fit the requirements.

The teacher from Lowman Elementary could not believe her eyes when she saw the new car.

"It feels amazing. It just, I don't have any words and I didn't expect it so it just took me by surprise. I am overwhelmed at this point," Rosenberger said.

She also said she would like to thank the administration because in order to be a good teacher, you need to have a good administration.

Now along with being a good teacher, Rosenberger says you need to love your kids as well.
