By Brittany Taylor - Digital News Editor

HOUSTON - One Houston Independent School District teacher doesn't have to worry about getting tickets to the Rockets game before they sell out.

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, Academy Sports + Outdoors surprised Nicole Harris with tickets to Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Many have said Harris works countless hours to mentor student-athletes on how to grow through sports.

"The students are the reason why I'm here. You know, we have good days and bad days, but at the end of the day they're all kids. And I just want to be a positive impact in their lives. I hope I do a good job at that," Harris said.

Academy Sports + Outdoors also made sure Harris would be decked out in Rockets red with a brand-new jersey.
