Do you remember your favorite teacher growing up? Of course you do. True inspiration has no expiration date, despite the passage of time.

Ultimately, teachers hold the power to make or break a subject, build up or tear down confidence, and help or hinder progress. Odds are your favorite teacher had a knack for bringing out the very best in you. We’re also willing to bet that he or she was a lot like Ms. Pow (“Ms. Pow Pow,” if you were lucky enough to attend her class).
Ms. Pow went viral in a TikTok video that underscores her ability to make a positive impact on students. In the video, this beloved teacher is surrounded by a group of young adults who surprise her with a Christmas present. Emotions run high when Ms. Pow dissolves in “happy tears,” only to receive an encouraging hug from one of her thoughtful students.

“Teachers…never get thanked, like, ever!” Ms. Pow later quips, after reading the card aloud and becoming tearful again.
Once the present is finally revealed to be a Steelers jersey with “Pow Pow” written across the back, pure elation takes over. Students are clearly thrilled to watch Ms. Pow react with unbridled excitement as she jumps up and down, clutching the jersey.
As you might expect, TikTok followers were moved by this stunning display of gratitude. It takes an amazing teacher to inspire such devotion in young people. Likewise, these classmates are pretty special to come together and honor their teacher in such a beautiful way.
And the proverbial cherry on top? Shortly after Ms. Pow was informed of her viral status (in yet another must-see video), the Pittsburgh Steelers left a pro-Pow comment on TikTok! Go Team Pow Pow!
Check out the second touching moment below, and share with teachers everywhere.
