The surprise celebration was "going wild" themed and featured a skit from students. "We just want her to know that we appreciate the things we see her do and we know there's a lot more she does that we don't get to see," said second-grade teacher Andrea Burn. "We just thought we'd do something special for her."

"When you come on a day like this, it puts a smile on your face throughout the entire day," Seng said. "It just reconfirms why you do what you do and the impact that you're having on the students, the teachers and everybody you work with on a day to day basis. I mean that's pretty powerful."
