The fun didn’t stop there and the tears began to roll as Laffoon learned that someone special put a birthday cake on her desk adorned with sunflowers. Laffoon was so touched as she repeatedly asked who decorated her office. Remaining secretive, her student replied that a historic moment occurred as she had never seen Ms. Laffoon cry. Urging Ms. Laffoon to hurry up, Laffoon is encouraged to go to class as Desiree knows that there is more in store. Ms. Laffoon continued to try to guest who her admirer was. At one point, she asked if it was Ms. Baker.
When Ms. Laffoon walked down the hallway, she was encountered by a sea of nursing students and staff members who each held sunflowers. By now, one could guest that sunflowers must be Ms. Laffoon’s favorite flower. Instructor Laffoon is so loved by her students that they each held a sign that explained why they loved her. From her students. viewers learned that Ms. Laffoon is a hardworking, funny instructor that encourages and cares about her students. Overwhelmed, Ms. Laffoon hugged each of her students as she walked down the hall.

Just when Instructor Laffoon thought the surprises had ended, her student informed her that there was one more person who wanted to show her love. In shock, Ms. Laffoon’s boyfriend, Derrick El Dorado Griffin walked to the front of the classroom with a balloon in his hand.
