BURLESON, Texas — A teacher at Burleson High School told his students he couldn’t remember the last time he had a birthday cake so this week, they surprised him.
Kyle Simpler had to wipe back tears when he walked into his decorated classroom and heard students singing Happy Birthday.
“Oh my God!” Simpler, 56, shouts after walking into his classroom. David Tubig, one of Simpler’s students, is shown in the video giving him a birthday gift.
The video was shared on Twitter by @Saeya8 and has been re-tweeted over 30,000 times.
Earlier this week, Simpler said he couldn’t remember his last birthday cake. In a second video of the birthday party, Simpler said it has been at least 10 years since he last had a birthday cake.
At the end of the video, an emotional Simpler can be heard telling the students, “Thank you!”
