A group of middle school students from Bellevue, Nebraska, did a good deed. They got together to give a big surprise to their teacher with a new pair of shoes.
Earlier this month, Logan Fontenelle Middle School teacher Trey Payne was sad. He found that someone stole his favorite pair of sports shoes out of his classroom. Since the shoes were expensive, Payne’s students felt very worried over the theft.
The students then pooled their money to buy a new pair of shoes for their teacher, and Payne could not hold up his tears. In a video on social media, we can see Payne opening the shoebox and then crying.
“It’s more than a pair of shoes. It’s about doing things to build everyone up around you,” said Payne. “In the past, I tried to show my kids this. And I think the lesson is in their minds. In turn, I will give more love to them.”
