— Positive reinforcement is so important for elementary school students, and a third-grade teacher in Alabama made sure one of her pupils knew he was doing a good job.
Willonda Caffie, who teaches at Fairfax Elementary School in Valley, planted a congratulatory sign in the front yard of Christopher Abney's home after the boy earned a perfect score on his reading test last month, AL.com reported.
"Mrs. Caffie is so proud of me!" the sign read.
"You made Christopher's day," Mccarley wrote.
Mccarley's post has been liked more than 19,000 times and shared more than 9,500 times since she posted it Aug. 18.
“I feel like Mrs. Caffie gives my son a fire to want to do his very best,” Mccarley told KRIV.
