THOMAS CO., Ga. (WCTV) -- It was all smiles Tuesday in Chris Wilson's class at Thomas County Central High School.
The 9th grade world history teacher was surprised with gifts and a visit from friends, administrators and staff.
Wilson was named Envision Credit Union's Teacher of the Month for September.
"We all try to do our best to educate the kids and make it enjoyable for them," says Wilson. "You form a relationship with them, not only as teachers, but as mentors."
He was chosen after being nominated by a friend who says they admire his work inside and outside the classroom. The nomination described how Wilson spends most Saturdays out in the community, finding ways to help local youth.
He's been teaching at TCCHS for the last 20 years. Wilson's advice to other educators is to enjoy what you do.
