The eighth-grade science teacher who wants to remain anonymous shared this incident on Reddit. He wanted to help a poor student through his 17-year-old daughter. He wrote on Reddit, "I asked one of my students who is very poor to give me his torn coat so I could bring it home for my daughter to sew...He came to class and showed me that he found this in the pocket.”

What did the note say?

There was a note in the pocket on the stitched jacket by the 17-year-old daughter Brianna. The note read, "Hey child, it is me, the magical coat fixer. Hope it holds up and please send it back if it doesn’t. Sorry I couldn’t make it as invisible as I hoped, but I did my best. Also since you’re in 8th grade (I think — I’m not 100% sure what grade my dad teaches) I thought you could use some 11th-grade advice."

She further continued, in capital letters, “MIDDLE SCHOOL SUCKS. YOU’RE ALMOST FREE. YOU CAN MAKE IT. GOOD LUCK.”

Talking to a media handle, the teacher said that his daughter Brianna is "incredible" and "does stuff like this all the time." Talking further about the student's reaction, the teacher said, "My student was grinning when he showed me the note. He kept looking at it in class and smiling, and I actually had to ask him to put it away so we could learn about digestion.”

The student too made a greeting card

This was not the end of the saga of selflessness and gratitude. Later that day, the student also made a greeting card for Brianna and handed it over to his teacher. In the card, he wrote, "Thank you for fixing my coat. I really appreciate the letter you gave me. It means a lot because 8th do sucks. But all my of my teachers are great."

The post has gained a lot of love from internet users, much to the surprise of the teacher. One of the users wrote, "There are so many wonderful things about this. You thought to help out a kid in your class who didn’t have the resources to help themselves / they weren’t afraid or too proud to accept help when they need it/you know your child’s skills well enough to know they could help / not only did your kid go out of their way to help, they thought it might be nice to include a note, a word of wisdom, and a promise to keep helping in the future if needed / the kiddo who needed help recognized how special this note was and thought to share it with you / and now you share it with your internet friends!"
