MADISON, Wis. — One teacher in Wisconsin is being hailed as more than just a hero. She is a “miracle,” according to one mother.

On Friday, Dena Carreyn was called to her daughter Lyla’s school.

She was told she was meeting a new teacher who Dena would have to train on how to dispense her daughter’s medication.

When she arrived, she received news that made her burst into tears.

Sitting at a table were Lyla’s current teachers with a note.

“I may just be her teacher now, but soon a little piece of me will be with Lyla forever. I’m Lyla’s kidney donor,” the note said.

Dena’s reaction to the unexpected news was caught on video and has since gone viral.
