Commissioner Mike Hanley of the Department of Education & Early Development brings up one final "0" to the Milken Educator Award amount that's about to be presented and all of the students—even Iron Man—are impressed.

With any luck, the students at Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School will remember this lesson in how much great teachers are valued when it comes time to choose their own professions. After all, $25,000 buys a LOT of Halloween candy!
