“She’s special and different that any of the other teachers I’ve had in the past,” Anisha said. “She’s a lot of fun.”

Anisha was so excited about her teacher; she decided to paint a picture of her as a superhero, flying through the sky surrounded by books with an apple in her hand.

Anisha and her parents drove 60 miles to Rachel’s home to present the painting in person. That’s when the superhero teacher broke down. “She was really happy, she said she sobbed,” Anisha said. “I was like wow; I didn’t know it was that good.”

“How one little girl can be so amazing and thoughtful and I just sobbed inconsolably,” Small said.
