Fenwick High School always knew Colby Burnett had what it takes to be a winner.
Now Burnett, who teaches advanced placement world history at the Oak Park school, has earned another distinction: he is the winner of the Jeopardy! Teachers Tournament.
Burnett got to tell the world - or at least the entire Fenwick student body Tuesday when the segment aired, he told ABC-7 Chicago.
The entire student body and the entire faculty, along with Burnett, watched and cheered as he gave the winning question.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Burnett won't be keeping the money he wins as a contestant on the show—he'll be giving it to his mom! He plans to move his mom back to Oak Park. She presently lives in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago.
