A 46 year old art teacher named Rebecca Boner is one of America’s favorite teachers after a picture of her dress went viral. Her daughter Charlece Lake, 20, shared photos on Twitter and wrote:
My mom is the cutest art teacher ever!’ the proud daughter wrote. ‘She made a dress and had every one of her students draw one thing on the dress for her to wear. This was her at her student’s art show tonight. I’M SOBBING.’
Bonner, a teacher at Mcauliffe Elementary School in Highland Village, Texas, purchased the cream dress on Amazon and then brought it into her classroom for her students to decorate and the end result was amazing! Rebecca is surprised by the new found fame, but told Good Morning America :
‘I’m not worried about being famous or anything like that but I do think it’s great to promote the arts, because elementary art is not everywhere,’ she said.
‘I think it’s really important for kids to have that outlet, to have that place to create, and that freedom to create.’
She also revealed the inspiration for the dress was a private elementary school art teachers’ Facebook group where they “share ideas, inspire each other and try to lift each other up.”
