Read How A Former Student Helped His 77-Year-Old Teacher Living In Car

Jose Villarruel, a teacher from California, recently received a 27,000/- dollar cheque from his former student named Steven Nava. Nava found 77-year-old Mr. Villarruel living in a car and immediately decided to turn his situation around. After helping the teacher in his capacity, he then took to Twitter to share the unfortunate story asking for help. 

 

 

Mr. Villarruel has been a teacher all his life but when the pandemic hit and schools were forced to shutdown, his working hours were cut into half and so was his salary. This directly resulted in him losing his home and he was forced to live in his old run-down car. Luckily, when Nava found out about him, he formed a GoFundMe page to raise $27,000 for his dear teacher in distress

It was Mr. Villarruel’s 77th birthday when Nava presented him with a cheque and told him how his old students and some compassionate strangers on the internet came together to crowdfund the amount. 

“I’m still trying to digest the entire experience, it’s extraordinary, totally unexpected,” Mr. Villarruel told The News Outlet

Nava’s kind gesture is clearly a reciprocating result of Mr. Villarruel’s teachings during their classroom days. The value this educator created years ago has now come back to him in the form of love and respect that he truly deserves.
