VINELAND, N.J. (FOX 29) - A Vineland special education teacher was surprised with school supplies for her students after a shout out from Kristen Bell on Instagram.
"The next day there were packages at my door," teacher Jacquie Campbell said.
Packages upon packages and they just keep on coming. These Amazon shipments were not for Jacquie. The boxes were for her students at Thomas Wallace Middle School in Vineland, New Jersey. Jacquie works as a special education teacher there.
The gifts are from people around the world, thanks to Kristen Bell. Bell posted a link to the teacher’s Amazon wishlist on her Instagram page as part of the actress' 'Featured Teacher Friday', which is a campaign to support teachers nationwide.
"I’m just overwhelmed. This is just amazing—overwhelming. It’s crazy. It's unexpected," she said.
Jacquie’s sister, Elyse, nominated her for the feature as not only a special education teacher but a mom and foster parent who continues to lead a selfless life.
Jacquie says underprivileged students at her school need this help
"They struggle and they come into school with little to nothing," she explained.

It’s #FeaturedTeacherFriday! I got literally thousands of emails from teachers and I’m so excited to share their stories and amazon wishlists with you guys. Also- NBC is going to make a donation to the school of the first 10 teachers. (Guess they wanna go to the Good Place!) Meet Jacquie Campbell, a teacher at Thomas Wallace in Vineland, New Jersey. Her sister Elyse sent me this: “I would like to nominate my sister, Jacquie. She has dedicated her life to the education of special needs children. She has taught hundreds of children over her career with multiple disabilities ranging from behavioral to severe autism and down syndrome. Her compassion and love for all of her students can not be measured. She is also a foster parent and has adopted both of her daughters through the foster care system. Everything she does is for her student. My sister is truly an amazing human and my absolute best friend.” So Jacquie’s school is Title 1 and 80% of students get free or reduced lunch, so any help they can get would be amazing! Her wishlist will be in my bio all day. Let’s do this, friends!! ❤️💪🏻📚🖍✏️
