Teach the Babies: Our #WomanCrushWednesday Makes Her Students Feel Beautiful!

This story gets our “Awww ... ” of the week: A pre-K teacher in Sugarland, Texas, made a major impact on one of her young students with a “twinning” teachable moment.


After complimenting a disbelieving but adorable 4-year-old student named August on her braided hairstyle, teacher Leigh Bishop doubled down on the flattery, showing up to school the next morning with her own hair braided in the exact same hairstyle, much to the delight of her young charge.

It’s the kind of feel-good story we love here at The Glow Up—and the kind of affirming experience we’d love all of our little girls to be having every day. That’s why we’re dedicating this #WomanCrushWednesday to Ms. Bishop for teaching her babies what beauty really looks like, inside and out.

Maiysha Kai is managing editor of The Glow Up, host of The Root Presents: It's Lit! podcast and Big Beauty Tuesdays, and your average Grammy-nominated goddess next door. May I borrow some sugar?



That child is absurdly cute. I could not properly parent such a child, as she would get away with everything and I’d be 100% okay with it because look at that child!
