(ABC 6 News) - Since the beginning of the school year we've been surprising area educators with the excellent educator award.
This week, we introduce you to a Hayfield teacher who received quite the surprise when the whole school was in on it.
We were there Tuesday morning to surprise and honor one of Hayfield's best.
"I'm extremely honored," says Marty Dick.
Marty Dick is a History teacher at Hayfield High School. He has been teaching for 16 years, the last decade at the Hayfield High.
"I enjoy showing up to work everyday, I'm humbled," he says.
His passion for teaching shows, in his lessons, in his love for the subject, and in his students.
"It means a lot to me that these young individuals at Hayfield appreciate the things we do for them," says Dick, "this is a very rewarding profession something different happens everyday."
Like getting a standing ovation.
