Teacher Helps Disabled Girl Dance With Class & She Couldn’t Possibly Look Happier.

They say that not all heroes wear capes. Sometimes, it’s the everyday people who step in at the right moment and make the difference.

They come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life. Their positions aren’t always glamorous, but they have big hearts and go above and beyond to bring smiles. One of those people was a sports teacher at a school in South America.

During a special program that required dancing, he decided to do something very kind.

A little paraplegic girl wanted very much to participate with her class – so he helped her.

In the video, you see the teacher with the handicapped student attached to his legs thanks to a harness-like contraption. They move as a unit on stage, with the happy little girl giving it her all.


You can really tell from her beaming smile that getting to participate means the world to her.

Not only is she likely to remember this fun day for the rest of her life, she’ll probably also look back and remember that it was thanks in part to a very kind teacher.

Teachers really do so much more than just teaching math and science… they show our children a path to a more inclusive and accepting world. If you are a fan of teachers who go out of their way to help students in need, please share this story!
