J.J. Watt is one of the top players in the NFL, but he hasn't forgotten his roots.

The Houston Texans defensive end recently shared a heartwarming story on social media about how he showed his appreciation for someone who helped him on his path to stardom: his fourth-grade teacher, Mrs. Keefe.

Mrs. Keefe is calling it a career after 41 years, so Watt returned to the classroom and got her a cake, shoes and a trip to Houston. Because everybody has that teacher they will always remember.
