Kyle Simpler told his students at Burleson High School in Burleson, Texas, this week he couldn’t remember the last time he’d had a birthday cake.
That comment was just that…a comment. That was until Simpler’s students decided to pool their cash together and surprise their beloved teacher with his very own birthday cake. The cake was topped with a picture of his favorite feline ‘Felix’.
This video shows a stunned Simpler walking into his classroom, which the students had decorated with streamers, and one teen handing him a gift.
As the students sing “Happy Birthday,” he puts his hands on his head and says, “Oh my God.” The visibly emotional educator walks over to a bookcase in tears and adds, “Thank you.”
