Turner High School's Spanish teacher Andrew Ward knows how to make a consistent entrance. Each and every day, the Kansas City language instructor walks into the classroom with his arms wide open and greets his students with a warm "buenos dias!" As a gift, two of his senior students, Bella Gordillo and Taylor Rios, captured Ward's famous greetings on camera and compiled them into a montage that'll make you scream "buenos dias, Señor Ward" right back at your computer screen.
Ward's video description recognizes his need to change up the work wardrobe.
Last week two of my senior girls surprised me with this video montage. Every day I begin class with a robust, "Buenos dias!" I was unaware they were capturing my goofiness, until they stitched it all together and shared it with the class... I realized after watching this -- that I need to buy more shirts. #Spanish3 #THSclassof2016
Rios explained to BuzzFeed News their decision to compile Ward's goofy but infectious antics.
I was like, why don’t we record it all fourth quarter and give it to him as a present at the end of the year? And Bella thought it was a great idea, so that’s how it happened.
He was laughing the whole time and smiling and thanking us.
He’s really cool. He’s one of those teachers that you can go talk to if you have problems.
He’s like a friend, kind of, but an adult version.
Keep doing you, Señor Ward.
