Like doctors, teachers too invest a lot in their students and it remains with them for a lifetime. A teacher retired from a school after 35 years and his students and colleagues did clap and cheer for him on the last day. The teacher waved and thanked everyone and he also looks quite emotional in a video posted by @GoodNewsMVT. He first walks through a room full of people and then climbs stairs to again find students there. All of them are seen cheering for him. It concludes with the teacher exiting from the room. There is a sense of gratitude that the kids have toward the teacher. 

The video is captioned, "After 35 years of teaching, this 5th-grade teacher retires and receives a beautiful tribute from students and co-workers." The teacher described this emotional farewell by saying, “I grabbed my bag and when I stepped out the door I saw that 'boy'. There, a whole movie played in my head, of the 35 years I spent in the classroom."
