I know its only February, but I'm already giving the Teacher of the Year Award to Leigha Bishop at Lakeview Elementary in Sugarland, TX!
Leigha's goal as a teacher is to make sure that all of her students feel empowered and take pride in who they are and what makes them special.
When one of her students, August, came to school with a new hairstyle, she could tell that the 4-year-old wasn't too excited about it. When she complimented the little girl and told her that she wanted her own hair to look like that, the young girl didn't believe her.
So, Leigha decided she was going to prove to her how much she loved it! The next day, she showed up with matching hair!
When asked about why she chose to do the hairstyle, Leigha said:
"With my student's hair being similar to mine, I thought what better way to show her how she inspired me to feel beautiful [than] with that same braided updo?"
If this isn't the cutest damn thing you've ever seen, you're wrong. Leigha - you are what every teacher should aspire to be! Keep on being amazing 👏👏
