Ellen DeGeneres Surprises South Greenville Elementary School Teacher on Her Show


Ellen DeGeneres surprised 2nd grade school teacher Michael Bonner on Thursday’s episode.  The South Greenville Elementary teacher attracted the attention of many viewers when a video of his teaching method to his students went viral.

The talk show host was inspired by the affect Bonner has on his students at South Greenville Elementary, where a majority of children have difficult home lives and many are homeless. According to the show, when Ellen heard about how Mr. Bonner’s unique, rap-filled teaching methods encourage students to go above and beyond, she couldn’t wait to meet him — and give his school a spectacular surprise! See what happens here:


We are so proud of Mr. Bonner for giving our children hope and understanding through teaching. If you would like to donate to a fantastic cause, visit Help South Greenville Elemetary GoFundMe page created by Ellen.
