Middle School Girls Get Back-To-School Surprise Thanks To Some Awesome Teachers
Middle school is a tough time when confidence can sink.
Kids can forget the awesome sauce they were in elementary school.
It can be especially tough for girls.
The teachers at Simmons Middle School in Hoover, Alabama have a great and inspiring surprise waiting for their 6-8th grade girls.
They’ll find it in the girls bathroom.
AL.com reports the girls will find inspiring messages sprinkled throughout the freshened up bathroom.
Sparkly sayings like, “You are beautiful.”
Five teachers took time out of their summer to paint the walls mint green and apply the appliques.
Laura Missildine is a 7th grade language arts teacher. She told AL.com “Our principal, Brian Cain, asked us to ‘own’ different sections of the building,” said Laura Missildine, a 7th grade language arts teacher who’s starting her fourth year at Simmons.
The school’s art teacher transformed the staff bathroom into a spa-like space last year, she said, and that inspired the group of teachers to do something similar for the girls.
“We felt our girls needed something like that, somewhere girls can go to call their own,” she said. “We wanted them to have a retreat.”
One of the teachers even made the appliques using a cricut machine.
Ms. Missildine shared the inspiring project on her Facebook page and the post is now going viral.
