A teacher who has been described as ‘the sweetest person to meet’, was left with with tears of joy after a Nigerian doctor and wife whose child she tutors, showed up with a brand new car gift for her.
The kid’s mom, who shared a video of the car gift session with the overjoyed teacher, said success to her means ‘giving to those without expectation’. Here is what she wrote below;
When my husband tells me that the teacher who has been teaching my girls for the last few years has been catching multiple buses to get to and from work everyday in the hot sun and cold! He said we should give her something I said….say no more! When you ask me to define success….this is my response! (Give to those without expectations) . All glory to GOD! . She’s like legit the sweetest person you would ever want to meet!!! She said she never had a new car before!
Few months ago, a student in Ohio posted photos on Twitter of the gift his parents gave his little brother’s teacher for Christmas and it’s, if nothing else, unique. DJ Sommers of Dayton, Ohio said his parents usually gives his younger sibling’s teacher something like a candle or flowers to thank them for their work.
Last year however, the parents thought this particular teacher needed something a little more substantial. The parents got bottles of wine for the younger Sommers boy’s teacher, but the labels on the bottles were replaced with a photo of the student.
“My parents always get our elementary school teachers a present around Christmas. Typically something small like a candle or flower to say thank you. This year they got them bottles of wine & replaced the labels with their own with my brother on them… Happy holidays,” DJ wrote on Twitter.
The label also contains a special message:
“Our child might be the reason you drink, so enjoy this bottle on us.”
