Sometimes, the best you can do is give someone something to keep their mind off things. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, high school teacher Nathan Neidigk had been having a rough time of it. His wife had passed away and his young son had just been diagnosed with leukemia. Yet, he carried on, continuing to teach his 12th- grade math students. And his students knew he was just being overwhelmed with personal situations.
So they got him something… something he had wanted for quite some time, and even making off-the-cuff mentions of it to them. They got him a Nintendo Switch gaming console and a few games. His awesome students chipped in and got him something that many of them would have liked themselves. Nathan found it very difficult to fight back the tears.
Mr Neidigk is a 12th grade math teacher at Volcano Vista High School. A few years ago he lost his wife and recently he learned his toddler has leukemia. Needless to say it’s been a rough couple of years for him. Despite all that, Mr. Neidigk comes to school with a positive attitude and inspires his students daily. With him being one of the schools favorites, his calculus class pooled their money together and bought him a Nintendo Switch that he’s been wanting.

His students got it for him because of their tremendous respect for him, and hoping that it would help ease the strain he was obviously going through.
