GILBERT, Ariz. -- There was a big surprise for a P.E. teacher at Mesquite Elementary School in Gilbert.
Students and faculty members were cheering loudly as one of their favorite teachers won a pair of tickets to this year's Super Bowl.
“My husband, he doesn't even know this is happening, so when he sees this he's going to freak out,” said Morgan Pardy-Hyatt.
An avid football fan and one who bleeds Cardinal red, Mrs. Pardy-Hyatt is hoping for the perfect scenario.
“It's so exciting. I can't imagine," she said. "And hopefully the Cardinals make it."
Mrs. Pardy-Hyatt won the tickets after submitting reference letters from the school and a video showing how she's implemented the NFL's "Fuel up to Play 60" campaign, which asks kids to choose good-for-you foods and be active for at least 60 minutes every day.
“She's awesome. She's amazing. She's the best teacher ever,” said students Sydney Keziah and Miranda Allen.
Mrs. Pardy-Hyatt was all set to play a little corn-hole and watch the Super Bowl at a friend's house, but not anymore.
“I'm going to call them from the Super Bowl; how cool is that?” she said.
