For teacher twinning with student, 'ugly hair' bullying was unacceptable

Teacher's proactive Facebook status goes viral


MIAMI – When a little boy told one of her students that she had ugly hair, a school teacher gave the girl a pep talk about the unacceptable bullying. But she didn't stop there.

Ana Ferreira, a teacher in Sao Paulo, Brazil, copied the little girl's hair style and showed up to school with it the next day. 

"When she saw me, she came running to hug me and say that I was beautiful," Ferreira wrote on a Facebook status.

Ferreira wrote she told the girl, "Today, I am beautiful like you." Ferreira shared a picture of herself twinning with her student. Her post was shared some 30,000 times.
