A super excited Year Five class watched in delight as their science teacher proposed to their maths teacher on Valentine's Day - and their excited reaction will make you teary. 

When Ohio teacher, Jason Seifert, 39, told his squealing students that he and fellow teacher, Ally Barker, 28, were in a relationship, it confirmed what many of them long suspected to be true. 

In a clip of the adorable proposal, Mr Seifert says, "Yes, we are dating. And ... we are a little bit more than dating. I am completely in love with her."

As the class starts to clap and cheer, Mr Seifert continues, " I was wondering if Miss Barker would like to become Mrs Seifert."

On bended knee, Mr Seifert presents his beloved with a ring - and she says yes!

"I knew they would freak out, they'd be a little bit hyper and they were just overwhelmed with excitement," a newly-engaged Mr Seifert told ABC News. "Some [said] they were snooping on Facebook and saw that we were in a relationship. There would be a brave kid that would make some comments like, 'I heard you and Miss. Barker were dating.' I'd say, 'Really? You heard that? I hadn't really heard that yet!'"

For Ms Barker, sharing the moment with her students make it extra memorable.

"Teaching is a really hard job and it's really overwhelming, but we love our kids," she said. "We see them more than we see our own kids and to keep them involved in that, it was really special."

The couple plan to marry later this year.
