Good Morning America Segment

Chicago Event Photography

First grade teacher Kimber Bermudez’s devotion to her students at Carlos Fuentes Charter School went viral when she spoke about her students to her seatmate on a plane flight, saying it can be “heartbreaking” to teach at a low-income school. The man behind her tapped her shoulder and handed her a wad of cash. He told her to “do something amazing” and sat back down. By the time the flight landed, Bermudez’s fellow passengers had given her $530 to help her students.

Bermudez’s recount of what happened on her flight has been shared more than 800 times since she posted it on Facebook last week and the story caught the attention of people around the world.

The Kids in Need Foundation (KINF), which supplies free school supplies to students most in need, decided to help Bermudez and her school even more. The non-profit organization surprised Bermudez at a Good Morning America taping with a donation of more than $300,000 worth of school supplies to her school — Carlos Fuentes Charter School.

I was lucky enough to be hired to photograph the Good Morning America segment and captured some great photos of the surprise gift.
