Reporter: That third grade teacher telling us encouraging words do make a difference in that pandemic. It's really helped during this time teaching during covid with so much out of our control. And that chant we do, it's great before tests, but it's also great out in the real world as well. Reporter: And tonight, that teacher's message to young minds everywhere. I want all students to know that they strong, that they are capable, that they are smart, and that they can do hard things and in fact they have been doing them all along. It's true. A pep talk for all the kids and parents out there just trying to get through this school year. I'll see you tomorrow night. Until then, good night.
