GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - An elementary teacher in Green Bay got the surprise of a lifetime on Valentine’s Day.

Kristin Zimmerman stood before youngsters in an all-school assembly when Tony Hellenbrand emerged from a custodian’s closet, got on his knees, and proposed.

Her head dropped onto his bouquet of flowers – but she did say yes.

The two had been dating for about three years after they had met, ironically, on Valentine’s Day.

Zimmermann is a first and second grade teacher at McAuliffe Elementary. She’s never at a loss for words in school – but she said the proposal rendered her speechless.

Hellenbrand admitted being nervous as well, especially in the moments before he left the closet.
