Anybody else needing some feel-good vibes? This heartwarming video from students to their teacher should do the trick.
Conrad Berghoef, a Dutch teacher at an ROC in Drachten (Friesland), was at a loss for words when his students surprised him with thank-you signs en masse.
He shared the touching video on Twitter with the caption:
“Me: ‘Did they fucking turn that camera off again? I don’t feel like it today.’
Class: ‘We are going to surprise Conrad.’
Ik: 'hebben ze verdorie weer die camera uit? Ik heb al geen zin vandaag.'
Klas: 'we gaan Conrad even verrassen.'
Ik: …….#prachtberoep #onderwijs #debaanvanhetleven

Berghoef followed it up with, “And to make it even better: they said beforehand ‘please record the lesson because there is no such and such’. They thought I would like to see this again.”
Teaching online for months on end can be exhausting, and Berghoef’s students showed that they recognise and appreciate his efforts.
The video has received a huge response, with comments such as, “You became a trending topic today. A ray of hope between all gloomy and angry tweets. Thanks!”
“You can’t get a bigger and better compliment! Whoever does good receives good …. Beautiful!”
And just, “Splendid.”
