LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

A Lubbock ISD teacher got a big surprise at school on Tuesday.

Rosalinda Bush is a 2nd grade teacher at Guadalupe Elementary School.

The district recently chose her as Guadalupe's Teacher of the Year, and on Tuesday, Office Max presented her with a huge box of classroom supplies and equipment - along with a Kindle Fire, a digital camera and a box full of other office supplies. They also gave her a gift card for $375.

But Office Max didn't know that Oct. 1 was also her birthday.

But Bush says this present isn't for her, it's for her students.

"I plan to go out and by some more things for the classroom, to kind of help the kids and kind of have them enjoy their stations better - just for them to have more fun learning what they're learning," she said.

A spokesperson for Office Max said the average teacher spends around $1,000 a year on supplies for the classroom.

The company says this is its way of giving back to educators.
