English Teacher's Students Throw Him A Surprise Birthday Party, Bringing Him To Tears

He didn't remember the last time he had a birthday cake.

When English teacher Kyle Simpler walked into his Burleson High School classroom in Texas, he probably didn't expect to be showered with gifts by adoring students. 

According to KFOR News, that's exactly what happened, however, when one of his classes took it upon themselves to throw him a surprise birthday party, complete with cake. 

Simpler's teary reaction to his surprise was captured in pictures and video by some of his students on Twitter, including users Saeya8 and karlie_3194

The video has since gone viral, and has been covered by media outlets that include theDaily Mail and FOX40, who reported that the party was planned after Simpler made a comment to his class last week indicating that he couldn't remember the last time he had a birthday cake. 


Happy birthday, Mr. Simpler.
