Teacher Makes Sandwiches For His Students Before A 3 Hour Long Exam.
Brian Johnston is a teacher at Clear Springs High School in League City, Texas. And he knew very well how grueling the upcoming Advanced Placement English exam was going to be on all the juniors taking it. It usually takes more than three hours to complete.
Says Brian: “Students are usually absolutely exhausted for the rest of the day after these exams. They have to go in with something in their oven.”
So just before they entered the area to take the exam, Brian made nearly every one of them a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to keep their energy up. And that would be about 50 sandwiches.
The teacher himself is a health nut, so he brought in several types of whole grain bread, natural JIF peanut butter and grape jelly. He was pretty sure this would help them make it through the test and even be able to tackle the rest of the day.
Hannah Hayes, a student in the class, posted pictures on Twitter of Brian making the sandwiches. They have been retweeted more than 20,000 times.

Says Hannah: “A lot of times teachers go unnoticed, and even though it’s kind of a small gesture, it meant a lot and it made an impact on students. It really shows that he cares about his students and wants them to do the best they can.”
And I’m pretty sure Brian’s gesture helped many of those students do their very best.
