Last week, LeBron James' Los Angeles home was vandalized with a racial slur. That upset a Northeast Ohio teacher, who took it upon herself to make sure the Cavs star feels loved back here at home. 

According to ESPN's Dave McMenamin, Jennifer Pennington, a middle school teacher for Akron Public Schools, decided to place signs outside James' Summit County property with positive descriptors like — "Hero," "Role Model," and "Humanitarian."

"It just seemed like the right thing to do to combat the evil, combat the hate in the world," Pennington told ESPN. "The first thing that came to mind was, 'Hero.'"

"So often in the news, I see stuff and I don't know what I can do about it," she said. "This was different — I could do something about it."
