Mr. Bonner is a pretty incredible second grade teacher right here in Eastern North Carolina!  He teaches at South Greenville Elementary which serves a neighborhood that is completely impoverished. Many of students have difficult home lives. In fact, many are homeless.

Ellen DeGeneres heard about Mr. Bonner’s creative and special teaching methods, and how they encourage and inspire students to succeed. Upon inviting him to appear on her show, Mr. Bonner took a break from teaching and headed to LA.

No stranger to giving, Ellen surprised the school with some wonderful things for his classroom.
