An important message


Melissa Bour is a math teacher from Tulsa, Oklahoma. When she noticed some photos online of her 12-year-old students that were less-than-appropriate, she decided to turn it into a teaching moment. "I got a piece of computer paper and a green pen and I wrote a little note:"



"Dear Facebook,

I am a 6th grade teacher in Oklahoma. My 12 year old students think it is "no big deal" that they are posting pictures of themselves in bras or with their middle fingers in the air. Please help me out by sharing this image and commenting with where you live to show these young students how quickly their images can get around.

Thanks!

-Miss Bour"



The photo was picked up by a local radio station's Facebook page and has been shared over a million times. It's safe to say that Miss Bour's students have learned their lesson!
