Libby Hilker, a second grade teacher, rewarded her students for earning more marbles than her in August by changing the color of her hair.
“Every time they do something exceptional or just way above and beyond or if I notice a really great act of kindness, they get a marble,” she said. “Anytime they need to work on something a little bit, I get a marble.”
