Soldier Son Surprises His Teacher Mom At Work After Five Yrs Apart With The Help Of Her Students.

A classroom of high school students helped their teacher welcome her soldier son back from overseas after being apart for over five years, and it has us in tears.

A video of the reunion has caught the attention of more than 40 million people on TikTok. It shows the son wearing his fatigues and carrying flowers and a sign that reads, “I’m home.” When she walks into class, he hides behind the door and then sneaks behind a whiteboard so the students can prime her for the big reveal.


“Question,” one student as he raised his hand. “When was the last time you saw your son?”

The teacher’s voice turned somber and sentimental, and she answered saying it had been almost five and a half years. She also hadn’t heard his voice for six months.

More students chimed in with questions, which led the teacher to explain that her soldier had been overseas. And if he came back, the first thing she’d do is make him a giant home-cooked meal. She then went on to gush about her son, saying he’s a good man who will be a wonderful husband. She also noted that she can’t wait to be a grandmother.

Soldier surprise

Every time she tried redirecting the students to their daily lesson, someone else would ask another question. She seemed dumbfounded by the sudden interest.

Finally, the whole plan came together when the young soldier stepped out from behind the board to announce his homecoming to the startled teacher.

When the soldier makes his presence known, the teacher takes a few minutes to understand what’s happening. She looks him up and down and doesn’t say a word before bursting into tears as he wraps his arms around her.

Watch the sweet soldier homecoming below.
