Franek, who teaches Ausmus’ son, Zachary, received $1,000 for herself and $1,000 for her class. When asked what she plans to use the money for, she said she’s still thinking about it.

People nominated their students’ teachers through CSCOE’s social media accounts, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter until November 29. Franek was chosen on Friday, Nov. 30 and was surprised with her giant check after school.
