A Texas teacher came up with a creative way to stop her students from teasing a classmate.
Shannon noticed that 5-year-old Prisilla was really sad. Classmates were teasing her about her short hair and saying she looked like a boy. She had started wearing hats to school to cover her hair. So Shannon decided to chopped off her waist-length hair into a pixie cut, to match Prisilla’s. At a school board meeting last week, Prisilla presented Shannon with a medal for being her hero.
