SPOKANE, Wash.— One third grader let her first-grade teacher know how much she meant to her in an adorable note.

The note was published on the Spokane Public School’s Facebook page and was sent by the girl’s mother, Adrienne Hatmaker.

Hatmaker said she thought the teacher was retired, but asked Spokane Public Schools to pass the note along.

“Teachers should be reminded how loved they are,” said the post.
