Teacher Moved To Tears By First Birthday Cake In Years

Published by Huffington Post on Sat, 13 Feb 2016

It was a throwaway remark that sparked a beautiful act of kindness.Kyle Simpler told his students at Burleson High School in Burleson, Texas, earlier this week he couldn't remember the last time he'd had a birthday cake.The conversation ended, and he thought nothing else of it.But the students remembered, and decided to do something special to celebrate their teacher's 59th birthday on Thursday.They pooled cash to buy him gifts and a cake topped with a picture of his favorite feline called Felix -- and then threw him a surprise party.Video going viral shows a stunned Simpler walking into his classroom, which has been decorated with streamers, and being handed a gift by a student. 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 says, "Thank you."He later told Inside Edition, "I was floored. It was totally a surprise let me tell you that."Simpler, a teacher at the school for two years, said his birthdays were usually low-key."It was memorable to say the least. It made me feel good that I have this group of students. These are great kids," he added.Student Karlie Moran, who helped organize the party, described her teacher's reaction as "perfect.""He's always been one of my favorite teachers. My heart broke because everyone's used to cakes," she told Inside Edition.When I heard he hadn't had one in 10 years, I said there's no way, we have to change that," she added.Also on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
