Teacher shares heartwarming moment where he asks colleague to marry him in front of ecstatic pupils

A teacher has shared the moment he proposed to his colleague in front of pupils

A teacher has shared the heartwarming moment he proposed to a fellow teacher in front of a classroom full of kids.

While you are at school, there's always gossip on the playground of rumours surrounding teachers and a possible relationship.

There are always two teachers at a school that look closer than friends, though they will often not admit it to the nosy pupils.

Well, this one teacher in US straight up discussed the rumours about himself and a fellow teacher, and what he did next shocked the pupils.

Back in 2017 - funnily enough on 14 February - Jason Seifert, then 39, asked his pupils if he they had heard the 'rumour' about him and his colleague Ally Barker, 28.

"There is a rumour going around that Miss Barker and I are dating," he said in the video.

"So, the answer is yes, we are dating."

The teachers addressed the classroom gossip.

At this point there is a collective 'aww' from the pupils, and some even decide to scream.

Jason continued: "We are a little more than dating because I am completely in love with her.

"I was wondering if Miss Barker would like to become Mrs. Seifert."

As you'd expect, the class goes wild as Jason gets down on one knee to propose to propose to Ally.

And fortunately for the moment, Ally says yes - which leaves the pupils filled with delight.

Following his proposal in front of the class, Jason spoke to ABC about his decision to do it at his place of work.

He said: "I knew they would freak out, they'd be a little bit hyper and they were just overwhelmed with excitement.

Students were delighted to see the proposal.

"Some [said] they were snooping on Facebook and saw that we were in a relationship. There would be a brave kid that would make some comments like, 'I heard you and Miss. Barker were dating.' I'd say, 'Really? You heard that? I hadn't really heard that yet!'"

He continued: "I pretty much figured that we met because of that school, we became friends because of that school, we fell in love because of that school, so it made sense,

"The teachers on our team, you become so close. We became a family there.

"I didn't want those teachers to know [about the proposal] either. I spoke to my principal to make sure she thought it was appropriate to do and she was all for it."
