What makes a good teacher? Sure, their attention to detail is of the utmost importance. It’s also imperative that they take an active interest in their students’ lives, and try to maintain a level of sensitivity to each of their situations. But this teacher truly went above and beyond for her class — and when she did, the most unexpected thing happened. It all started when she was shopping at Walmart for classroom supplies. All 150 of her students are required to bring notebooks to school, but this young teacher already understood the reality of many people’s situations: Some students either can’t afford or can’t remember to bring notebooks to class, so she was covering them to make sure everyone had something to write in. That’s when a stranger asked her what she was doing and, well, the rest was history. Read about this heartwarming back-to-school moment below — it will definitely inspire you to consider paying it forward.
