Student Random Act of Kindness
I am a second grade teacher and my students are learning economics; how to budget and save their money. We were sharing the other day what we are saving our money for and after the students shared, I shared what I am saving my money for.
They know that I have a daughter that lives in Pennsylvania and one in California, so I told them I save my money so I can visit my daughters.
Then next day, my student, Angel, comes to me with a one dollar bill. I asked him what that was for.
He said it was for my trip so that I can could take a plane to see my daughters!
I was overwhelmed with emotion and told Angel that my heart was full from his act of kindess. I told him that my savings was growing and he should save the money himself. Later in the day, when going through a basket of their papers, I noticed the dollar again. He really wanted me to have it.
This was just the sweetest thing ever, from one of the sweetest boys in my class!
Thank you for listening to my story.
