TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- On the last day of school in Tallahassee, one teacher got a special surprise before the start of summer break.

Christine Russell received the award for teacher of the month for April.

The 11th grade English and Reading teacher is going on her 5th year at Florida State University School.

She says her students are her inspiration.

"It’s the kids, making them feel like they're important and special. Helping them to graduate high school and move,” says Russell.

Russell has been teaching for 16 years.
