The class made a montage of Turner High School teacher Andrew Ward saying “buenos dias” — Spanish for "good morning"  to students each day as he entered class.

Ward had no idea that his kids were recording him and was so touched by the gesture that he shared it on Facebook, where it has been seen more than 366,000 times.

He wrote: “I was unaware they were capturing my goofiness. I realized after watching this – That I need to buy more shirts.”
