An elementary school student in Texas has a reason to look forward to school again, thanks to her teacher.

Meador Elementary School Kindergarten teacher Shannon Grimm noticed a change in her student, Priscilla Perez’s behavior. “I would cry because I would think school was not fun," Perez told KTRK.

As it turns out, the 5-year-old had gotten a new haircut, and her classmates began teasing her. "Friends started to call her a boy, and those words cut deep," Grimm said.

It got so bad, Perez wouldn’t take her hat off when she got to school.

This was Perez’s daily experience-- until winter break, when Grimm stepped up for her student, shearing her own locks.

"I am going to do other things for my friends in the classroom besides teach them. I am going to show them the love and support that they need to learn," Grimm said.

According to Grimm, that was all it took for the teasing to stop.
