In Sao Paulo, Brazil, teacher Ana Barbara Ferreira, received widespread praise and acclaim on Facebook for her post on a student in her class. Her post has been liked by more than 146,000 people and shared 30,000 times.
Her student was sad because a boy had told her that her hair was ugly and in response, the teacher came to school the ext day with that very hair cut.
Ontem minha aluna veio me falar que tinha um menino falando que o cabelo dela era feio. Ela estava bem triste…. naquele momento a única coisa que consegui dizer à ela era que ela era maravilhosa e que não ligasse para o que ele falava. Hoje acordei e lembrei do que tinha acontecido e resolvi fazer o mesmo penteado que ela costuma usar. Quando me viu, foi correndo me abraçar e falar que eu estava linda e eu disse “hoje estou linda igual à você!”
(Yesterday my student came to tell me that she had a boy talking about her hair being ugly. She was very sad … at that moment the only thing I could tell her was that she was wonderful and did not care what he said. Today I woke up and remembered what had happened and I decided to do the same hairstyle that she usually uses. When she saw me, she ran to hug me and say that I looked beautiful and I said, “Today I look just like you!”)
