"My English teacher put this on her door today..."
An English teacher has been praised for the heart-warming and heart-breaking letter she posted on her door for her students.
Student Natalie Gomez arrived at her English lesson to find a notice on the door, reassuring all non-white, non-straight, non-Trump supporters that they "still belong in America", despite Trump's recent rhetoric and promise to kick out 3 million undocumented immigrants and his appointment of a Vice President who is anti-LGBTQ.
The letter, which begins "Dear undocumented students" has been seen by hundreds of thousands of people on twitter, as well as the students in her English lesson in California.

The letter has had a lot of support on Twitter
@natssfatss You've got a great teacher & mentor there... It's people this who will make America great again!— Jake Ahmed (@7771Jake) November 11, 2016
And some less than positive messages
But mainly messages of support
@natssfatss Tell your English teacher to keep up the good work. We need more people like her.— Darryl Mott (@Abstruse) November 11, 2016
Last week, teacher at a uni in the USA has shared a similarly heartbreaking, touching and hopeful message with his students, after the shock election of Donald Trump to the Presidency.
Be warned, this is also some pretty heartbreaking stuff.
This is what I told my students this morning. A few were crying, very few had slept. pic.twitter.com/anJfbP8ZAY— Patrick Flynn (@UnknownPenguin) November 9, 2016
