Local teacher teaches the gift of giving
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WRSP) —
Getting a gift can bring a smile to your face, but giving a gift can warm your heart.
One teacher is showing her students that giving can be more rewarding than receiving.
For 15 years, Kathy Lamsargis has collected gifts from the community then lets her student pick two gifts for whoever they want.
However, it's not just the kids who benefit from a little holiday giving.
"Just multitudes of people involved in this and coming to wrap all the gifts and even the transportation of gifts being moved to the basement and brought back up again,” shared Lamsargis who is a reading teacher for District 186. “I mean it really involved all the students."
Hazel Dell Elementary and Dubois Elementary were both schools involved Thursday.
