    According to Teacher Kathlene Jane Mendoza, she wanted to give a little something to her students as a "sign of love for them" despite the disapproval from some of her friends.

    Teacher Kathlene said, "I prepared these keychains two weeks before Christmas Party. I wanted to give them a gift as a sign of my love for them. My friend made these keychains possible for me. Yung iba nagtaka pa, kasi bakit ko pa nga daw bibigyan sila ng regalo eh sakit sila sa ulo, sa lalamunan. But still I want to give it."

    On their Christmas party, the thoughtful teacher gave away her gifts hoping it would be appreciated. Unfortunately, only few thanked her for it.

    Teacher Kathlene said, "Until the Christmas Party came, I gave them the keychains one by one. Some people said thank you."

    "But you know what's the most unforgettable thing they've said? 'Cher, ito lang regalo mo samin? Kaya din namin bumili nito eh!'" she continued.

    The teacher admitted how hurt she was because she realized how ungrateful her students, her simple gift was turned away.

    "And then I realized, no matter what you do for them, if they think it's not enough it will never be enough," Teacher Kathlene said.

    She realized how it pained her that she expected too much, hoping she would be appreciated. Teacher Kathlene said, "You know what's funny? I really expected that they would appreciate but it turns out that they did not."

    Teacher Kathlene's post has gone viral with over 36,000 reactions. Many shared encouraging words for the generous teacher who was clearly emotional.

    A friend of Teacher Kathlene wrote, "You're a great friend, know that you are worth it. The passion and effort you put for those gifts cannot be counted. Christmas is about love and giving and you perfectly exemplify it. Merry Christmas!"
