It is absolutely true that teachers are true heros. They prepare us for the real world and act as guides through life. Lindsay Painter, a 1st grade teacher in New Braunfels, Texas is a true testament to this.

Matt Parker, one of Painter's students, had a very special Christmas wish. All he wanted was to find a donor match for a kidney. Having kids of her own and relating to Matt and his family, Painter decided to be tested to see if she was a match.

Matt and his family recieved the best news they could have ever hoped for. Painter was a match. This is an incredible story that had to be shared.
