Students give this Brazilian teacher a heartwarming gift after learning he was sleeping at school
Bruno Rafael Paiva, a teacher in Brazil, recently received a heartwarming surprise from his students.
Paiva had been covering the maternity leave of another teacher and, due to the bureaucracy, his name wasn’t yet included in the payroll. Not only had he not received a salary in two months, he was also living and sleeping at the school.
When the students found out, they pooled together a total value of $400 of their own money.
“This cannot be. How can you do this?” Paiva said as he opened his gift.
When the students saw him in tears they all gave him a group hug.
“I have many rooms that I have loved in my heart to be a teacher, but no room has ever shown such love, help and affection for my teacher’s work as Building #1 did today,” Paiva wrote on Facebook.
