ATLANTA -- The 11Alive News Today morning show works hard to honor the great teachers in metro Atlanta.

Tuesday morning, education reporter Donna Lowry invited all of this year's Class Act recipients to 11Alive's Midtown studio for a special reception.

The teachers received plenty of freebies, including supplies from the School Box and tickets to the Georgia Aquarium. At the end of the morning show, the teachers were treated to a balloon drop live on air.

Meet all of 11Alive's inspirational Class Act teachers and learn how to nominate an educator for the honor.
