As she put it:

I used a teachable moment. I got out a piece of computer paper and a green pen and I wrote a little note.

In only a few hours, the post went viral!

In less than a week, it was shared hundreds of thousands of times -- in all 50 states & several countries.

Bour deleted the original post -- but copies continue to circulate on the web.

Conclusion

The lesson definitely impacted the kids.

Several students said they would either be deleting photos from their accounts or leaving social media altogether.

Bour also learned that she should be more cautious about the message her Facebook posts send her students.
