ST. TAMMANY PARISH, LA (WAFB) - A couple returned to the third-grade classroom where they met 16 years ago and ended up sharing a very special moment in front of a room full of students.

Nate Pierre and his girlfriend, Darcey Crawford, went to Folsom Elementary on Friday, Mar. 8, under the ruse he was going to give a third-grade class a talk about real estate careers.

He read a book to the students before bringing Crawford up to the front of the room, taking a knee, and asking her to marry him.
