Teacher uses game show winnings to treat students
LONG BEACH, MI -- A teacher from Long Beach used prize money she won on a TV game show to treat 20 of her students to a trip to New Orleans.
Spanish teacher Deborah Bishop won more than $23,000 in September on the game show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"
WLOX TV reports that Bishop, who teaches at West Harrison High School, arranged for two limousines to pick up the students on Wednesday.
She treated them to dinner at the Court of Two Sisters. Then, they attended a dress rehearsal of the opera "The Barber of Seville." Bishop got the show tickets for free, because she is a member of a program called "Opera in the Classroom for Teachers."
Bishop is the adviser of the Spanish Honor Society at West Harrison High.
