Spanish teacher Joe Lara at Valley Christian High School in Arizona recently had his final day of teaching, that also happened to be his birthday.
Lara's students got him an epic birthday present, his dream pair of Jordans. The video of him opening the shoes will warm your heart with all of the feelings. You hear Lara let out a yell when he saw the blue and white Jordans inside the box.

Thank you for your dedication to the next generation of flight, Mr. Lara. We're honored to be a part of your classroom. https://t.co/xl22MrGcjF— Jordan (@Jumpman23) April 27, 2018
