 (ABC 6 News) -- Fred Kindschy got quite the surprise Wednesday.

"This is an interesting moment," chuckles Kindschy, "wow, it feels great that I have students that are so nice and work so hard in class and make my job quite easy."

Easy enough, that he has been teaching for 29 years with the district. Kindschy teaches at Hayfield Elementary School and says working with young students helps to keep him young.

"Each day is something special and you never know what to look forward to, but they always provide different exciting times everyday."

He says his favorite thing about teaching is seeing their eyes open up and brighten up when they learn new things.

Not a problem for his students as they raced each other with their hands in the air to get called on for the answer to the math question.

"I want them all to realize what its like to be respectful and to work hard in the class and in school and to come away with the best education."
