Students surprise teacher who says he can’t remember last time he had a birthday cake

BURLESON, Texas — A teacher at a high school in Texas told his students he couldn’t remember the last time he had a birthday cake — so the students surprised him and the video is going viral.

Kyle Simpler, 56, an English teacher at Burleson High School, had to wipe back tears this week when he walked into his classroom and heard students singing “Happy Birthday!” Students also decorated the room with balloons and a birthday banner.

“Oh my god!” Simpler shouts after walking into his decorated classroom. David Tubig, one of Simpler’s students, is shown in the video giving him a birthday gift.
