WICHITA — Lauren Craven's third-grade students should practice saying the name Mrs. Engel.
The Allen Elementary School teacher was left speechless this afternoon as her boyfriend of two years proposed to her during class.
Kevin Engel, Craven's new fiance, popped the question after getting down on one knee at about 3:45 p.m. On hand were a few family members and Craven's third-grader.
Craven said yes, which left one student in joyful tears, according to one onlooker.
Engel set up the surprise with administrators at the southeast Wichita school, near Mt. Vernon and Oliver. Craven was told to meet with another staff member in another part of the building. When she returned, Engel was in the room.
Today also was the couple's two-year anniversary.
