At the beginning of the school year, Taylor Kerby, a high school psychology teacher, complimented a student on his shoes and said he wanted some. Then on Tuesday, this happened.
Dyani Heredia, the 17-year-old student who tweeted the video, told BuzzFeed News that after Kerby said he probably wouldn't buy a pair, her classmates Faye and Olivia pitched the idea to buy him the shoes about two weeks ago.
"There were about 25 of us and we pitched in $2 each," Dyani said.
It took the students about two weeks to get the money together, and Olivia bought the shoes last weekend.
