Fourth grade “Survivor” teacher welcomed back

On Dec. 20, Floral Park-Bellerose School students flanked a red carpet set up outside and held handmade signs to welcome back fourth grade math and science teacher Thomas Sheehan, who was recently named the grand prize winner of CBS’ 39th season, “Survivor: Island of the Idols.”

Third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade students and teachers were in attendance for Sheehan’s celebration, chanting “Mr. Sheehan” as he walked outside through the school’s doors. Sheehan, all smiles and dressed in holiday attire as the Grinch, stopped along his red carpet walk to high-five and hug students.

Sheehan, along with the school’s mascot Buzz, also joined in on the holiday singalong in the auditorium.
