An East Lake Elementary teacher decided to turn to chalk to help spread positivity among her school community during a time where many need it. 

Kristin Moore, who teaches fifth-grade at the Lakeville school, wrote messages of kindness and encouragement on driveways, including those of students and staff, according to a Facebook post by Rosemount-Apple Valley-Eagan Public Schools.


In the post, Kristin said: "I saw a teacher in another state post on Instagram that she did this and felt inspired! I wanted my students, and their families, to know that I am thinking about them and that we are all in this together."
