CLARK, NJ - Wouldn't it be every kids dream to run their classroom their way?  Well that is what happened at  Carl H. Kumpf Middle School when Principal Rick Delmonaco and math teacher Heather Hull organized a Teacher for the Day event recently. 

The day served as an opportunity for students to gain a perspective into a day in the life of their teacher. A silent auction was held for students to bid on selected CHK teachers. The winning students worked with their assigned teacher to develop lesson plans for the day, along with dressing the part of a teacher.

 "Teacher for a Day was a great experience for both the teachers and students! However, the best part of it was being able to raise money for such a wonderful cause," stated Hull.
