Having a good teacher transforms anyone's life. Apart from parents, teachers are the biggest guiding force in an individual's life during their growing years. On that note, teachers must be able to foster a relationship of respect and adoration with the students so that the latter can be authentic in their interactions with them. Mr. Fili, the students' "favorite teacher" featured in this video uploaded by @prlsgrad2024 on TikTok, has managed to do just that with not only one student but the entire class. His students arranged a heartwarming surprise for his birthday, reflecting the true spirit of the relationship he shared with the kids. The video came with a sweet caption for Mr. Fili, which touched everyone's hearts, making the video viral in no time, garnering over 44 million views.

The video begins with Mr. Fili rushing toward the class. It seems like he has been informed of some "fight" happening on the premises. Hearing that his students were involved in it, he quickly went there to break it up. The teacher entered and got involved physically to separate the two boys. He began giving exasperated expressions to both of them as if saying that "he expected better." Then, his eyes went to the table that was set up with a beautiful cake and candles. He put everything together. In a matter of seconds, the whole room got filled with party poppers and chanting of "Happy Birthday." One of the students placed a charming birthday hat on Fili's head and the other arrived with the cake in front of him. The teacher happily blew on the candles, extremely elated and appreciating the love with which the students prepared the whole thing for him.

In the caption, the students explained why Mr. Fili means so much to the class. They wrote, "Mr. Fili isn't our 'favorite teacher' just because he allows us to have fun and doesn't play by the rules, but it is because of his passion for his students. No matter how tired he is each day he still comes to school and games with energy to give us the best high school experience we could ever ask for." The students further shared how being in the company of Mr. Fili inspires the students to give back to the community. The man has always encouraged them to follow their own heart. "As the seniors walk out of JH, we have gained ambition and so much passion to be who we are as he has taught us to 'never care about what people think but just do what you think is right and to live life to its fullest,'" the children added. The caption ended with a sweet birthday wish for the teacher.
