Students surprise San Francisco teacher with a touching thank you

Students in Jaclyn Alagna’s English class coordinated a show of gratitude during Thursday’s virtual lesson

A seventh-grade English teacher in San Francisco was surprised Thursday with a coordinated show of gratitude by her students during a virtual classroom lesson. 

Jaclyn Alagna, 35, was in the middle of her instruction via Zoom when her 35 students from the St. Brendan Parish School each began to say "Thank You" while holding handmade signs.

The shows of thanks were coordinated by the students and teachers aide Tori Palmer, Alagna said.

The Massachusetts native finally taught them in person after the Thanksgiving break when the school began a hybrid system where students come in for class two days each week. 

"It was so weird because I had really got to know them so well over Zoom," Alagna said. The kids are just wonderful."
