Avon Lake teachers empowering girls with inspirational messages

AVON LAKE, OH (WOIO) - "Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly."

A pair of Avon Lake teachers, intent on bringing inspiration and joy to the young girls in their classrooms, decorated the bathrooms at Troy Intermediate School with positive messages, soaps and lotions.

The teachers made the special effort to boost the self-confidence of their impressionable pupils.

From the Avon Lake City Schools Facebook page:

For young girls, society, media, advertisements and even their own peers sometimes teach negative lessons. Body image, self-esteem, and self-confidence can be altered by what girls hear, see, and read.
