Students show their love for a teacher

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Since students in Kentucky elementary and high schools have not been in physical classrooms for several weeks, teachers have been going out of their way to let students know they’re not forgotten.

Now, one group of students wants their teacher to know they’re thinking of her. Jessica Riedel, a first grade teacher at Briarwood Elementary School, received a special surprise early Wednesday evening with her students and their parents driving by in a personal parade for the educator.

Joe Tolbert, the parent of one of Riedel’s students, says the idea came about from the students and parents because they want to show their love and appreciation to the first grade teacher.

Tolbert says they coordinated the event with Briarwood Elementary to be sure Riedel would be at home during the parade.
