Texas teacher cuts hair short to match student being teased in class over her haircut

A teacher in Texas went above and beyond to support one of her students with a sweet gesture.

Shannon Grimm went the extra mile for a young student who was being teased because of her haircut.

5-year-old Priscilla Perez began coming to class with a hat on, and refused to take it off.

Her kindergarten teacher realized something was wrong, saying it was "about that time that friends started to call her a boy".

Priscilla's teacher decided to take matters into her own hands and surprise her student with a matching haircut and bow.

Grimm says her new hairstyle did the trick, and her classroom has learned their forever lesson.
