A picture of the students at Alan Shepard Elementary lining up to get their yearbook signed by school custodian Steve Weidner Jr. has taken the internet by storm.

The photo was posted last week on the school's Facebook page, and was then shared on Imgur, where it got 3.4 million views to date.

"I get along great with the kids. They are really great. We joke around a bunch and they're able to talk to me and stuff like that," he told ABC News.

"He has good relationships with the students," school principal Shirley Padera added. "The students count on Mr. Steve to be there when they need him."

That day he signed all 104 yearbooks for the second-graders, and signed an additional 200 yearbooks that week.

This isn't the first time he's done this. The yearbook signings are an annual tradition for him, though this is the first time someone has taken a picture of it.


Of course, being the nice guy that he is, Weidner praised the students and parents when the photo was shared.
