The sweetest gesture from a student has gone viral, after the teacher shared on social media what happened during his class.
On Facebook, teacher Ryan James Dueñas shared how one student gave him a bunch of bananas out of the blue.
Ryan is a teacher assigned to an elementary school in a rural area.
According to him, a student came in very late during one of his English classes. The students told him about his tardiness and then he asked the boy to get in.
After that, he went on to proceed with his class, until he noticed that the boy, named Manuel, was preoccupied with something.
He called out Manuel so he would pay attention, but was surprised when he suddenly pulled out bananas from his bag.
Ryan said Manuel gave him the bananas as a gift for his kindness. And this touched the young teacher’s heart.
The sweet gesture also touched a lot of netizens. They said that kids in the barrios from rural areas are generally sweet and kind.
Others also commented that despite having nothing, the boy was generous enough to give something for his teacher. Manuel does not even have shoes to wear. He goes to school barefoot.
Because of this, Ryan gave Manuel something in return: a brand new pair of shoes.
He then ended his post saying, “a simple act of kindness really matters.”
