Beaumont teacher dyes hair to reward students
Teachers often think of creative ways to motivate students.
One Beaumont math teacher promised her kids she'd dye her hair hot pink.
And that's exactly what she did.
Michelle Shelton told her junior high math classes at Vincent Middle School that if 80 percent of the students passed the STAR exam, she'd dye her 'do black and hot pink.
When Shelton learned that 82 percent passed, she didn't tell the students.
Instead, she waited until they came to class and saw the surprise face-to-face.
Shelton says she's proud of her students and that the test scores brought tears to her eyes.
