ATLANTA -- 11Alive's morning team rolled out the red carpet Monday morning to honor Metro Atlanta's "Class Act" teachers. The 31 men and women were nominated by their peers and students for special recognition for their committment to their classes and students.

On Monday, the 31 educators, their principals and some family and friends joined the 11Alive morning team as a live studio audience.

For a Random Act of Kindness, they all received some of our anchors' favorite things:

From Chesley and Men's Warehouse: a stylish matching tie and pocket square.

From Karyn and Spa Sydell: a gift certificate for much-deserved pampering.

From Jill Becker and Natural Body Spa: "Thyme" Eucalyptus lotion.

From Commuter Dude and Ace Hardware: "The Absorber," a chamois the Dude swears by as the best to dry your car with, without scratching it.

From Donna Lowry and photojournalist Kathy Bourn, a DVD copy of each of the teachers' inspirational stories.

The School Box, a store for teacher supplies, sponsors the Class Act segments and also treats each Class Act winner with a shopping spree.

Throughout the morning, the 11Alive team shared stories about their favorite teachers. Tell us about your favorite teacher in the comments section below. To nominate a teacher for a "Class Act" click here.
