Former students surprise retiring teacher


After 41 years on the job, a Metro elementary school teacher decided to retire last school year.

Dozens of her former students returned to surprise Nancy Flexer with a going away party she will never forget.

Forty-one years worth of students came back to surprise Flexer at Cole Elementary School. Her former first-graders wished her well and shared stories of how much she changed their lives.

After her reunion, Flexer's former students gave her a "Medal of Awesome."

The reunion was put together by YouTube sensation Kid President and media group Soul Pancake. The video has already been seen by thousands online.
