Students surprise teacher after he told them it had been 10 years since he had a birthday cake

- When a teacher in Burleson, Texas told his students he couldn’t remember the last time he had a birthday cake he never expected this!

The kids in Mr. Kyle Simpler’s class made sure his 56th birthday was memorable by throwing him a surprise party in his classroom, reported FOX 17 in West Michigan.

When he walked in – the students began applauding and singing ‘Happy Birthday.’ He wiped away tears as students gave him gifts and cards. Waiting for him on his desk -- a birthday cake!

It all came about after Simpler told the class last week that he hadn’t celebrated with a birthday cake in about ten years.
