Ryan Allan's students in his third grade class at Clear Creek Elementary School know to be nice to people younger than they are. This is especially beneficial to Allan who is technically a year younger than most of his students.
Allan, 32, was born on Feb. 29, 1976 and because of the leap year he only has a birthday every four years.
When Allan's students learned of their teacher's age on Thursday, they were elated.
"Are you serious," one exclaimed.
"That's so cool," another remarked.
