A Spanish teacher at Valley Christian High School in Chandler, Arizona must have built a very nice relationship with his students. He was so surprised after they gave him a gift he had been dreaming of wearing.

Joe Lara has been teaching Spanish at Valley Christian High School in Chandler, Arizona for the last ten years. Over the course of his career, he has built quite a rapport with his students, which is why they were heartbroken to find out he’s retiring next year.

So as a means of making his last year at the school extra-special, the students all pitched in to get him a birthday gift he so much deserves.

In a video that was uploaded by one of the students back in April, the youngsters can be seen excitedly yelling at Lara to open their carefully-wrapped present.

The students knew how much Lara wanted a pair of 2016 “French Blue” Air Jordan XII retro sneakers. So, with a little coordination and some secret money collecting and buying skills, these resourceful teenagers got the job done!

Then, they surprised him on his big day.
