I’ve posted stories in the past week which painted public schools in a rather unflattering light. Those schools, teachers, and administrators more than deserved the bile, but sometimes we need a reminder there are good teachers out there.
Meet ShaRee Castlebury. ShaRee is an elementary school teacher in Lawton, OK, and came up with a terrific idea for her students’ last day of school.
Most teachers wouldn’t take kindly to you drawing on their clothes. But first-grade teacher ShaRee Castlebury didn’t mind at all. In fact, she told her students to do it! And as you can see, the result is pretty spectacular.
The teacher, who works at Pat Henry Elementary in Lawton, Oklahoma, wanted to do something special for her student’s last day of school. So deciding to combine fun with creativity, she came to work in a plain white dress and asked her little “Precious Picassos” (as she calls them on Facebook) to draw all over it.
Not only was it an awesome way for the kids to end their school year – it also gave ShaRee a beautiful keepsake to remember her students by. “It is a memory dress,” she told TODAY. “Because I don’t want to lose the beauty of the kids as they have to grow up and move on from me.”
I’d suggest ShaRee be nominated for teacher of the year, but this president usually chooses libtards who promote Common Core, reverse racism, and Michelle Obama’s inedible lunches.
