TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - Monday night, two lucky Tampa Bay teachers and two students got the chance to meet Katy Perry at her Tampa concert.

Teachers Kem Mosley and Stephanie Dershem, and students Adalis Moody and Kye Harris met Katy Perry backstage during her Prismatic World Tour performance at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

Kem Mosley and Adalis Moody are from Hill Middle School in Tampa while Stephanie Dershem and Kye Harris are from Monroe Middle School in Tampa.
