It’s no secret that teachers help shape our futures by being central figures in our lives at a young age. For some teachers this means strict deadlines and rules, while others may have a more creative approach to inspiring young minds.
One teacher in Sugar Land, Texas, took extra initiative to make one student’s day in the sweetest way.
Bishop told her student she loved her hair so much that she would show up with similar style the next day. The 4-year-old responded with an eye roll and an “OK, Ms. Bishop.”
