A first-year elementary school principal in Beaumont, TX, takes to Facebook live every Tuesday night to read a bedtime story to her students.

Dr Belinda George, 42, is a first-year principal at Homer Drive Elementary in Beaumont, and began reading stories to her schoolchildren in December 2018.

“I knew that the children were going to go on a Christmas break, and I was going to miss them and I wouldn’t get to read or interact with them,”

“That prompted me to start doing the stories live.”

George calls it “Tucked-in Tuesdays,” and it’s become somewhat of a sensation at her school.

Every kid that’s on there, their parent is right there,” said Dr George. “I’ll say their names which is their favorite part, to hear their names.

“I’ll say something that’s kind of sad, something that happens to the character, and they’ll put a sad emoji. It’s them interacting, and my favorite part is I’ll ask questions and they’ll type in their little answers.”

“Kids will come up to me Wednesday and say, ‘Dr. George, I saw you in your PJs reading!,” she said. “They’ll tell me their favorite part of the book.”

Parents and children from across the country are starting to tune in, as well.

Authors are reaching out, with some sending books and even offering to come and read at the school.

“The biggest lesson isn’t even educational, it’s that the kids know their principal cares beyond the end of the day. And all the other stuff, the reading and the writing, it’ll come.”
