Losing teeth is a common part of everyone's childhood. While some kids end up freaking out over the momentary pain they experience while outgrowing their baby teeth, others safe-keep these fallen teeth to exchange them for coins from the fabled Tooth Fairy. Kids often stuff the tooth that fell out in little pouches, keeping them under their pillows, hoping the Tooth Fairy will visit them and leave behind a dime for their tooth.

A post shared by u/captain_bubba84 about Tooth Fairy will probably put a smile on everyone's face. We might also realize that not all heroes wear capes. Some heroes are disguised as elementary school principals who go above and beyond for their students. The Reddit post shared a printed letter written by Roger Williams, the elementary school principal at Henryetta Public School in Oklahoma and the letter is addressed to the Tooth Fairy.



 

Williams wrote the letter to let the magical creature know that a student at his school has lost her tooth during school hours. "Dear Tooth Fairy," the letter began. "Today, Kaisley lost a tooth while eating her lunch. Unfortunately, while eating her lunch, she accidentally swallowed her tooth as well. I’m sure the tooth will end up popping up sometime. As a trained principal and hobby dentist, I can verify that there is definitely a gap in her teeth that was not there this morning when she came in."

"Please accept this letter as official verification of a lost tooth and provide the standard monetary exchange rate you normally use for a real tooth," the principal continued in the letter. "If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the phone number above." We are not sure if the actual Tooth Fairy will ever show up to contact the principal but his sweet gesture reflected how much he loved and cared for his students as an educator.

The girl's father Worren Blake also shared the letter with Oklahoma PLAC on Facebook and gave a shout-out to the principal while explaining that his daughter Kaisley was upset about the Tooth Fairy not being able to see her since she lost her tooth and swallowed it. Fellow Reddit users loved the principal validating the existence of the Tooth Fairy through a sweet letter while demonstrating how important it is to let kids enjoy little moments and phases of life while growing up.

Positive comments piled up underneath the Reddit post as the principal was applauded for doing his job right by celebrating the little girl's loss of a tooth as an important milestone.

This is the sweetest most wholesome act from any principal I’ve ever met!" u/Loud_Inspection8171 commented, "I wish more schools were like this this guy takes such an active role in his students' lives he must be a fun principal. This reminds me of a principal I had back in Aberdeen Elementary." u/girlwithlionadded said, "Someone gives that principal an award. My kids' principal certainly doesn't go above and beyond." This is bound to become a fond memory for the little girl when she grows up!
