We recognize those that teach our children, but what about those that get them to school safely? It takes a village.

With the holidays, making sure that we send a gift to school for our kid's teachers is a must. But in this special local story, the "angel" that makes sure that the kids arrive safely to school, gets our love and respect.

This is Miss Angel, a school bus driver in Rockton. Miss Angel was surprised by a parent with not only a gift but kind words that brought Miss Angel to tears.

Here is the Facebook post from Marcie Severson-Haselton:

Seemed rather fitting to share in the spirit of Christmas. Even though my boys are now older & no longer ride Miss Angel’s bus, she will always have a special place in our hearts. Lifting others up by the simple act of kindness & love. Let’s all continue to take the time to appreciate the special people in our lives throughout the year.

Enjoy this touching video, as Miss Angel receives a Christmas surprise. It does indeed, take a village.
