Teacher welcomed back from Iraq by students

BATAVIA Neal Fyooks arrived back in the Chicago area last weekend. And students at Louise White School in Batavia couldn't wait to see him.

The entire school attended an assembly to welcome him back. Some of his former students even spoke about him and told how they prayed for his safe return.

Fyooks is a member of the Army Reserve. But he'll return to his duties as a third grade teacher next week.
