ALVIN, Texas (WHDH) — A school custodian went above and beyond to comfort a student with autism who became overwhelmed during lunch.
Miss. Esther noticed 9-year-old Kenlee Shaw laying down on the cafeteria floor with a blanket over her head as she tried to drown out the noise around her.
In a moment of compassion, Esther laid next to the fourth-grader and held her.
“I love Miss. Esther because you are very kind of me,” Shaw said.
The two have formed a special bond over the past few years.
“The minute I saw them together it was very apparent their love for each other,”said Shaw’s mother, Hollie.
Hollie Shaw added that kindness is why her daughter adores the school custodian.
