A school custodian in Texas is receiving praise from around the country after a photo of her laying on the floor to comfort a student with autism was posted to Facebook.

Kenlee Bellew-Shaw, a fourth grader at Melba Passmore Elementary School, was having a rough day last week when a custodian affectionately called “Ms. Esther” by the students took notice.

“Our custodian is the best, sweetest individual in the world,” Hollie Bellew-Shaw, Kenlee’s mother, wrote on Facebook. “[Kenlee] wanted no part of being in the cafeteria this morning with all the noise so she laid down w/her blanket on the stage. When Ms. Esther saw her she came and laid next to her and patted her back.”

The school district said it’s an example of how a “kind word, a hug, and a little compassion are all it takes to make a huge difference in a child’s life.”
