People voiced their admiration for the students' hard work in the comments section. Reddit user u/Dapper_Cable_4929 wrote: "The beauty of true love. When a good person brings their heart with them to the classroom and the kids respond. This is what it’s all about. When I taught, it was most important to me that the students knew somebody really cared. Sometimes you’re the only one. Grades are important but not as much as making sure they knew they were important and cared about just as they are. And look what happens!"

Another Redditor by the username u/LoveLadyThirteen said: "As a teacher, I can confirm it can be a totally thankless position. But WOW can you tell she absolutely loves what she does and truly, truly loves each and every one of her students."



 

u/dsnow04 noted: "That was awesome. Just shows what a wonderful teacher she must be and what's even better is that with the current climate in this country, it is refreshing to see this class of diversity be so together in their apparent love and appreciation of their teacher."
