Teacher Let Students Draw All Over Her Dress For The Last Day Of School.
Mrs. Castlebury wore the coolest dress to school on the last day of classes. It’s not because it was made by a famous designer but because it was made with a lot of love by her grade one class in Lawton, Oklahoma.
The 25 budding artists used fabric markers to draw rainbows, ladybugs, hearts, and flowers to express their love for Sha-Ree' Castlebury. “They were so careful and loving with the dress. I can tell they did their best,” says Castlebury.
Their creative work was the hit of the school with other students, parents, teachers, and school principal stopping by the classroom to admire the mini Picassos’ creation. Castlebury wore it with pride the whole day admitting to prancing “the hallways of my school everywhere I went.”
Her new grade one class next year have a lot to live up to.
Sha-Ree' Castlebury's students worked diligently for two weeks drawing, colouring, and writing their names for their beloved teacher.
Castlebury says that its hard to say goodbye to her pupils but its also rewarding seeing how much they have grown up in just one year.
"It is a memory dress because I don't want to lose the beauty of the kids as they have to grow up and move on from me," says Castlebury.
Her students become part of her family which makes the end of the school year that much harder. "I never want to leave them. I cry happy tears every year seeing them grow so much," admits Castlebury.
The quirky 27-year-old was probably the envy of all the teachers that day.
