Quinta Brunson shared a card she received from one of the kids Abbott Elementary School after the show’s multiple wins at the Emmys.
Brunson, who also created the ABC sitcom, plays the teacher Janine Teagues amidst an ensemble cast of teachers and other members of the school staff.
Although set in an elementary school, the program focuses primarily on interactions between the adult staff’s characters.
At the Emmy Awards on Monday (September 12) Abbott Elementary School scored three wins, including Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actress, which went to Sheryl Lee Ralph.
On Thursday (September 15), Brunson shared a congratulatory message she received from one of the kids cast on the show.
Addressing Brunson as “Ms Janine,” the child’s message reads, “Congratulations on winning the award for Best Comedy Writer as [sic] Emmi.
“Thank you for having me on your show. I hope you win more Emmys,” the message continues, before signing off as “Tiny Cowboy.”
“Yes I love my job,” Brunson wrote in the caption for the post, expressing her appreciation for her co-star’s well wishes.
During Brunson’s acceptance speech, Jimmy Kimmel lay down at her feet as part of a joke to protest his loss in the same category.
However, the moment was read by some viewers as Kimmel “stealing Brunson’s moment,” and he apologized for his actions on Wednesday’s edition of his late-night talk show.
For British viewers Abbott Elementary School can be viewed on Disney+.
