1 When students offer their solidarity
One teacher related how she had taken an extra week off after New Years to bury his father who had just expired. After the tragic incident when he was back in his class room a student surprised him with a heartwarming “Sir, I’m sorry about your Dad.”
The teacher spotted the boy again across the hall and realized that the student was in his period 3 class and not period 2. The boy could have waited but he made it a point to offer his condolences. The teacher thanked and reminded him of the incident once more o the boy’s graduation day.
