Teacher assures students they are valuable

A few months ago, English teacher Brittni Darras of Rampart High School discovered a student had attempted suicide because the student felt she was not important and made no difference in the world. So Brittni sent her an encouraging letter at the hospital. Then she decided every student needs encouragement. It took her two months to prepare a special letter for 130 of her students, telling each one how important and unique they are.

She handed the letters out on the last day of school before summer break. As they read their letter, some students cried; some hugged Brittni, and one even thrust her letter in the air declaring it was the best thing she ever received.
