Students get in their teacher's head

SEYMOUR (WKOW) -- A science class near Green Bay took an eye-opening field trip to learn how their teacher overcame a life threatening situation.

These high school students from Seymour went to the Neurospine Center of Wisconsin, where they got to see their teacher, Dennis Rohr, undergo a neurological exam and watch his actual brain surgery.

"For him to share it with us, it's really cool, it just let's us know what really goes on when something like that happens and how serious it is," said Jesse Artin, a senior student.

"It's sort of bizarre almost to see yourself up there but sometimes you wonder if things happen for a reason and I think this happened for a reason so I could share it with students," said Rohr.

Rohr's doctor says he's happy to have the kids visit, as it is a great way to get them interested in a health care career.
