Halle Berry Surprises Her 5th Grade Teacher with Home Makeover

Halle Berry gave back to a teacher that made a huge impact on her as a child.

The actress appeared on an episode of “Celebrity IOU” where she renovated her 5th-grade teacher, Yvonne Sims’, home with a little help from the Property Brothers‘ Drew and Jonathan Scott.

According to Buzzfeed, Halle said, “If she hadn’t come into my life, my life would have been completely different. She was really like a second mother in many ways.”

“I had a white mother and she — being a Black woman — taught me about my culture,” Halle added.

The pair would often have “cookie talks” at Yvonne’s table and now that she has a brand new kitchen renovation, they can resume them in style.
