Chandi Langford, a fifth-grade teacher at Langford Elementary School, wrote inspirational messages of encouragement for each one of her students on their desks with dry-erase markers. Langford told ABC News, she wanted to "reassure and motivate" her students before their standardizing testing
"I want my kids to know that I appreciate them and that I believe they can achieve anything they want to, and for me, it doesn't matter if they don't do well or even if they fail – as long as they were trying their hardest, learn from their mistakes and do better in the future," she said
In addition to the heart-warming, personal notes, she also gave her students donuts! The photos of her messages on the desks went viral, and have been shared almost 20,000 times on the Woodbury City Public Schools' Facebook page
