William McAlister, a social studies teacher at Carter Junior High, and Adams Elementary third-grade teacher Tarri Miller were honored this week as the Dallas Cowboys/Reliant Energy Class Acts teachers of the month for September and October.
Both teachers were surprised on their campuses Monday as the Dallas Cowboys bus showed up with a Cowboys jersey, football, a check for $4,000 to use on campus, Cowboys mascot Rowdy and former Cowboys offensive lineman Joe Looney.
McAlister, who is also a coach, was heading to the gym when he was greeted by the Cowboys crew and Arlington ISD superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos. His award was extra special as he is an Army veteran and the Cowboys wanted to honor him during their Salute to Service week.
Miller thought she was heading to the front office for a meeting. Little did she know that just outside the office was the bus along with her students. Miller got hugs from all her students and was picked up by Looney.
The Arlington ISD thanks the Dallas Cowboys and Reliant Energy for naming two Arlington ISD teachers as their Class Acts Teacher of the Month!
