Trader Joe’s isn’t just a store, it’s a whole lifestyle.
And no one knows that better than Mr. Wilson.
The TikToking educator shared a video on Aug. 20 of his brilliantly executed Trader Joe’s themed classroom, in which he truly went above and beyond to create. The teacher even made himself a custom Trader Joe’s shirt and red shopping basket to complete the look.
Sadly, Wilson’s big room reveal to his future students was thwarted by an online learning plan, implemented by many schools across the U.S. in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
The bittersweet clip, which has been viewed over 402K times, has racked up over a thousand comments from people who wish they could have a teacher as dedicated as Mr. Wilson.
“This made me so sad,” wrote one user. “Teachers are so under-appreciated. You are amazing!”
“I’m obsessed with this theme, you would’ve been my fave teacher,” said another.
“As a Trader Joe’s employee this is simply amazing,” commented a third.
Wilson explained in a TikTok comment that he was able to get the details so precise for his classroom decorations by enlisting the help of a nearby TJ’s.
“My local store took pictures for me and I printed at Staples!” he wrote.
And, for what it’s worth, it seems Wilson’s students may get to see all his hard work after all — he shared a video of himself sanitizing his classroom on Sept. 2 with the caption, “They’re coming.”
We hope they love the layout even half as much as we do.
