Henrico educator wins Super Teacher award

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A teacher at Henrico's Pinchbeck Elementary School was selected as one of eight educators statewide to receive a Virginia Lottery Super Teacher Award.

Ryan Stein was surprised with the award during a student pep rally.

Stein though he was getting students pumped-up for SOL's so he came out in a mullet to lip sync We Will Rock You.

Little did he know Stein was getting a $2,000 credit for classroom supplies.

Stein is excited about what he can do with the money.

"One thing that I would love to get now that I have this money is a thumb drive for each student so they can take the different activities we do in the classroom home and show their parents," he said.

Stein also received $2,000 in cash.
