Teacher Gets Emotional During Sweet Surprise On Kelly Clarkson Show

A generous and loving Indiana high school teacher was overcome with emotion when she was surprised by her former students during an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show.

The world is full of hurting and struggling people. They are trying to get through and survive by any means available. Individuals are dealing with overwhelming situations and shouldering massive burdens, including young children. 

One woman, a teacher at Carmel High School in central Indiana, has worked to provide healing and comfort to sick children. During her teaching career, Sarah has helped to raise more than $6 million for Riley Children’s Hospital at IU Health. The hospital specializes in providing care to youngsters. 

In a clip posted on YouTube, Sarah talks about the origins of the annual dance marathon, which raises funds for the children’s hospital. She also told Kelly about the many other ways throughout the year students raise money to help sick children. 

But throughout the interview, Sarah refuses to take much or really any credit. She constantly puts the spotlight on the students, saying none of it would have been possible without them and their dedication. 

Sarah states that she initially went into teaching to make a difference in the lives of others. She adds that she has been able to do that through the annual dance marathon. 

Near the end of the clip, around the 5:20-minute mark, Kelly surprises Sarah with a video of students from all over the country who had been involved with the fundraising efforts. 

They all thank her for her many generous and loving efforts, praising her for her “mission-driven fundraising” and “pouring her entire heart, soul and life” into her students.

The Indiana teacher is brought to tears. She brushes her eyes several times as her past students shower her with kind words and praise. 

At the end of the clip, the teacher is given a $25,000 check for Riley Children’s Hospital at IU Health.
