We’ve all had teachers who weren’t the best, and we all have had teachers that were so outstanding that we still remember them. Some students in Texas have found themselves one such outstanding teacher.
What’s so outstanding about him? He makes breakfast for his students to give them a better chance to clear their AP English exam.
A teacher at Clear Springs High School, Texas, Mr Johnston, serves his students with the best brain food- peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Johnston handed out sandwiches to his students who hadn’t had breakfast this morning, while sitting at a table set up in the middle of the hallway.
A student of Johnston’s, Hannah, said, “Mr Johnston has always supported his students and given them whatever he can to help them be successful, academically or otherwise.
The morning he made PB&J for students was the morning of our AP test. These tests, which are administered by College Board and can earn students credit for college, are long and (I hate to say it, but) painfully boring.
The English test, specifically, has a long multiple choice section followed by short answer prompts and three full-length essays. Our school starts at 7 am, and that’s when we had to be ready to test.
When we got to school to get ready for the exam, Mr Johnston was set up with a table and a chair, three different types of bread, natural peanut butter, and grape jelly. Yes, he washed his hands right before making the sandwiches.”
She added saying,"He offered them to the students as they went in to the testing room. He was really insistent that we get the nutrients we need so we can do our very best on our tests. He’ll admit that he followed the example of some other teachers at our school, but I thought the notion was so kind that it had to be shared!
I didn’t expect it to get as much attention as it did, but I’m so happy it did. Not for my own interest, but because educators can make such a huge impact on their students and it’s so often overlooked. I am glad that Mr Johnston, and a lot of other educators who have been mentioned by other users who quoted the tweet, are getting the appreciation they’ve never asked for.
It’s so weird, though, to have people I barely know sending me screenshots of my tweet on iFunny or Instagram accounts with millions of followers.”
Hannah had added her teachers’ photo while serving the sandwich on Twitter which received an overwhelming response. Her tweet received over 20k retweets and 105k likes. The post was filled with comments praising the teacher for his kindness, while others asked if he was single.
One tweet said: "Outstanding teacher, teachers like this go unappreciated and unrecognized, they need more appreciation because they put up with hard head students."
Some even complained about the teacher's hygiene while serving the breakfast without wearing gloves.
To which a user put across smartly saying, "I hope everyone crying about him not wearing gloves never goes out to eat. Like damn, I’m sure he washed his hands. Do you not have an immune system? It’s there for a reason. Stop looking for issues in everything."

This story of compassion is worth all the likes and retweets it received. We all deserve such compassionate and kind teachers like Mr Johnston.
