Thomas Corby is one of those teachers who goes above and beyond for his students. As a history teacher in New Egypt township, NJ, he's changing the lives of his students on a daily basis with his passion for the past, and for teaching!
His students decided to give him an end-of-the-year gift that was truly fitting for this dedicated educator. The teens raised over $600 to buy Mr. Corby two tickets to see "Hamilton" on Broadway! It's been his dream to see the hip-hop history-based musical live in person. He's entered the ticket lottery every single day for four years, trying to win cheap tickets to the groundbreaking show.
The students checked with Mr. Corby's wife about their schedule, and bought tickets for a day they were free! Corby had to hold back tears, overjoyed that he’ll finally get to be "in the room where it happens."
