Teacher Cuts Hair To Match Student Being Teased For Her Short Hair
February 19, 2019
A kindergarten teacher in Willis, TX, cut her hair to match one of her students after she realized the student was being teased for her new hair cut.
Kindergarten student Prisilla Perez was a happy little girl when the school year began.
However, after getting her hair cut short, her teacher Shannon Grimm noticed Prisilla was acting more quiet and sad, and she didn’t want to come to school anymore.
That is when Ms. Grimm realized Prisilla was being bullied about her short haircut.
Ms. Grimm decided to take matters into her own hands to restore Prisilla’s confidence by cutting her own hair short to match.
She even buys matching hair bows for her and Prisilla to wear every day.

Prisilla was honored at the Willis Independent School District board meeting on Feb. 11 as the “district student of the month” after being nominated by her teacher for showing bravery during a difficult time.
In a surprise twist, Prisilla presented Ms. Grimm with a medal for being her hero.
