Local Teacher Receives Marshmallows as Gift and Goes Viral
This has to be my favorite post of the year and I think you may agree. A local elementary school teacher received a small yet VERY kind gesture from one of her students
From Local School teacher Rachel Uretsky-Pratt
My school and classroom are full of kind, giving, and amazing children and teachers. I have learned from so many before me and will continue to learn from my students and my colleagues. Truly I have learned as much from my students about life as they have learned about math, science, reading, and writing from me. Learning in my classroom will always be a two way street.
My wish for all of you is to remember this kind and simple gesture of love from one of my school babies and carry it with you and continue to spread love and kindness to everyone you meet-not just during this holiday season.
Thank you so much
Happy Holidays. 💕
To help put your life into perspective:
Today was the last day before our winter break. We will have two weeks off to rest with our families and loved ones over the holidays then head back to school in 2019.
With it being the day before break and Christmas right around the corner, most teachers bring their kiddos something such as books or little treats and occasionally in return receive something from their students.
Today I received some chocolates, sweet handmade notes, some jewelry, but these Lucky Charm marshmallows stood out to me the most.
You see, 100% of my school is on free/reduced lunch. They also get free breakfast at school every day of the school week. This kiddo wanted to get my something so badly, but had nothing to give.
So rather than give me nothing, this student opened up her free breakfast cereal this morning, took the packaging of her spork, straw, and napkin, and finally took the time to take every marshmallow out of her cereal to put in a bag—for me.
Be grateful for what you have, and what others give you. It all truly comes from the deepest parts of their hearts.
Happy Holidays. 💕
