A High School Student Got Her Teacher A Cake To Apologize For Being Late To Class Every Day

"I needed to get him a gift."

"I was editor of the yearbook and senior class president," she said. "Me being 15 minutes late to class was not me being a bad student, but I was so committed to so many things."

She said her yearbook class was right before calculus. She'd often stay late working on different projects for the yearbook.

"You've been so understanding," she said she told her teacher after finishing work on the yearbook in April. "I needed to get him a gift."


The post has been retweeted over 2,600 times and has gained over 6,000 likes. People started to name teachers they think they owe a cake to.

Hudak said that the calculus teacher is one of the school's most "beloved" educators.

"He was the greatest teacher ever," she said. "For me and all of his students."
