Teacher Trent Hopkins had his life changed in a matter of minutes thanks to his devoted students. 

 

From North Carolina, his students fundraised secretly to supply him with a pair of Enchroma glasses. According to local media, the glasses range in price from $349 to $429.

 

"I ain't going to cry," Hopkins says in the video, after realising what was in the box handed to him by the students. "I'm so terrified. Is this happening?"

 

Putting on the glasses he's blown away. "Is this what I've been missing?" he says, seeing colours for the first time in his life. 

 

"Oh, my gosh" Hopkins says, as he examines the colours in front of him. "Are you serious? I've been missing out on so much … Everything is different. It's so weird."

 

 

It's nearly all too much for him, saying that he "wants to throw up."

 

The kind students also held signs and balloons to help him identify the colours. One of the signs read "You've made our lives brighter, and we've made yours more colourful."

 

So cute! 

 

Posting to Facebook, Hopkins wrote that the gift  "completely changed my world."

 

"I've been convinced that I teach the greatest students on the planet for a long time," he continued. "Today, that belief was affirmed. To all the students, staff, and parents involved: Thank you for adding a little colour and a whole lot of love to my life."

 

The sweet post has since gone viral, and people are loving the student's adorable gesture. 

 

 

He must be one hell of a teacher!
