- Bishop wore her hair in the exact same style the next day to show the student how much she meant it.
Most people have a teacher that impacted them in a positive way, but rarely do teachers take as much of an inspiring approach as Leigha Bishop.
A photo of Bishop wearing the same braided hairstyle as one of her students has recently gone viral for its powerful message.
This teacher, Ms. Bishop from Lakeview Elementary in Sugarland, Tx complimented one of her student’s hair saying she loved it, but the little girl didn’t believe her. The next day, the teacher came to school with her hair done the same as her student so cute! pic.twitter.com/jdVc3eDIDq
Bishop said the idea started when she complimented the 4-year-old student on her hair, which wasn’t met with the positive reaction she expected.
“Of course she didn’t believe me, so she responded with a ‘Sure, Ms. Bishop.’ as she walked away,” Bishop told INSIDER.
Disheartened by the student’s reaction to her compliment, Bishop decided to take matters into her own hands to show her student just how much she meant it.
“With my student’s hair being similar to mine, I thought what better way to show her how she inspired me to feel beautiful with that same braided updo hairstyle?” she told us.
