Four school teachers were taken by surprise Tuesday, with big checks being handed to them in their classrooms. CenturyLink has a program that awards grants to teachers wanting to acquire technology to improve the quality of education.

A check for $2,000 was given to Ontario High School history teacher Daniel Slaughter. He'll use the money to buy a Smart TV for his classroom.

Stingel Elementary third grade teacher Alecia Schalmo was awarded $5,000, to pay for 20 Nooks and E-books. Then it was on to Madison High School where cosmetology teacher Laurie Dean was awarded $5,000 for a microscope to examine hair and skin, and math teacher Scott Brewer received $3825 for a special type of calculators.

The teachers were among thousands across the country to apply for CenturyLink Clarke Williams Foundation Teachers and Technology grants.
