Metro teacher surprised with supplies from Office Max

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

A Metro Nashville teacher thought the television cameras in her classroom Tuesday were there for a story on schools, but she was the reason for the occasion.

Melanie Childs, a second-grade teacher at Rosebank Elementary, received $1,000 worth of classroom supplies from Office Max as part of its A Day Made Better program.

The program aims to ease the burden on teachers, who often have to reach into their own pocketbooks to buy things they need for their classes.

"This is a great surprise. My sister, that I teach with at our school, this morning, she was like, 'It's gonna be a great day today. We're gonna be positive that it's gonna be a great day today.' I didn't know this was gonna happen. So, it's been a terrific day, I would say," Childs said.

The teacher's classroom received a big box of pencils, binders, folders, a laminating machine and a camera.
