A Nebraska teacher has his students to thank for making him – and frankly all of us – cry.

To help celebrate Kindness Week at Logan Fontenelle Middle School, a group of students surprised Trey Payne with a new pair of shoes, according to a Facebook post from the school system. The students pooled together money to buy them after his previous pair had been stolen from his classroom.

The emotional reaction from Mr. Payne in the video posted to Twitter by student Emma Mitchell (@EmmaxMitchell) quickly gets everyone else emotional as well.


Great work by the students at Logan Fontenelle to help spread kindness!
