In these tough economic times, there's one group of teachers that doesn't have to worry about making ends meet. Fifteen educators in Shasta County, CA hit the $76 million jackpot on Monday!
The team of administrators, teachers, a school nurse, and a psychiatrist have been playing the same numbers for seven years. The winning assistant principal said he's happy to see people who chose careers in education finally strike it rich.
Since a basic understanding of statistics would keep most from playing the lottery, I'm assuming this group doesn't include any math teachers!
And the school won't need to hire an entire new staff right away at least. Most of the winners say they plan to keep their day jobs!
