WASHINGTON — A teacher at a school in Washington is pulling at the heart strings of many after she shared a picture of a gift she says she received from one of her students.

Rachel Uretsky-Platt says 100% of the students at the school where she teaches are on free/reduced lunch, and they also get free breakfast at school.

With the holidays right around the corner, Rachel said one student in particular wanted to get her something "so badly, but had nothing to give."

So she said the student "opened up her free breakfast cereal this morning, took the packaging of her spork, straw, and napkin, and finally took the time to take every marshmallow out of her cereal to put in a bag--for me."
