Chris-ShaRee Castlebury has a special gift for her "precious Picassos." She's a first grade teacher at Pat Henry Elementary School in Lawton, Oklahoma. Toward the end of the school year, she asks her students to draw on a dress with fabric markers, which she wears on the last day.

Castlebury calls it her "memory dress." It's her unique way to remember the children that she taught that year. She tells the Today show:

"It is a memory dress because I don't want to lose the beauty of the kids as they have to grow up and move on from me," Castlebury told TODAY in an email interview from South Korea, where her husband is stationed in the U.S. Army. "It is a wonderful thing, but so sad each year to fall in love with these kids and then have to say 'see ya later.'
