Protect him at all costs.
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.
He said he liked our classmate's Vans on the first day of school, so we pitched in and bought him his own pair❤ pic.twitter.com/a7ynwdzeGx

A video of Kerby opening his present from his students at Edgewood High School in West Covina, California, has since gone viral with more than 47,000 retweets.
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.
