You can read her full post below...

"Today I was running low on pencils so I asked all of my kids to pull out any of my pencils that they had in their desks. I had one student ask me if he could keep his pencils that his mom gave him for school. Of course, I said yes. He then said, 'well, I guess I’ll give you a few so my classmates can have them too.' I thought nothing of it and took the pencils that he handed me."

"When I was sharpening them, I noticed writing on a few of them. I then realized that my student’s mother took the time to write on his pencils. I asked him if he would mind showing me the rest of them. What I read melted my heart..."

"This probably took his mom a few minutes to do yet it lit up his whole day at school."
