Teacher Is Moved To Tears By Students Pooling Money To Replace His Stolen Shoes

January 31, 2020

Two weeks ago, Logan Fontenelle Middle School teacher Trey Payne's basketball shoes were stolen from his classroom.

His students pitched in and replaced the stolen shoes.

On Tuesday, a group of Payne's students surprised him with a card and a present. After reading the students' card, Payne shaked his head in disbelief and reluctantly pulled a shoebox out of the gift bag.

"Are you serious?" he said in the video posted to Twitter. As Payne opened the box, he started shaking his head in disbelief as tears began to fill his eyes once he realized what the students were gifting him.

"It's more than a pair of shoes, it's about doing things to build everyone up around you," Payne told the school district. "I try to show my kids this and I think the lesson has sunk in for many, in turn, reaffirming my purpose and my ideals."
