KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Knox County elementary school teacher got an early-morning surprise Thursday.

Fourth-grade teacher Beth Caballero got out of early-morning bus duty and was allowed to take the morning off as part of Teacher Appreciation Week.

To thank her for all of her hard work, Knox County Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre took over bus duties for Caballero, who teaches at Karns Elementary School.

The gestures from Dr. McIntyre and her students meant a lot to the educator.

"I've gotten so many sweet messages and nice little tokens and just the kids saying thank you," Caballero told 6 News. "It means a lot for them to know and appreciate all that we do."

The teacher said she spent her morning off drinking her coffee and putting in grades.
