A teacher who is currently mourning the loss of her husband recently headed online to share a photo of the not that was made for her by her thoughtful students who wished to comfort her during her time of grief.
In the post that was shared by Melissa Milner, the students drew a picture of her and her husband, who is in Heaven, but still has a connection with her via a long string that connects from her heart to his. They also explained that even though they are now apart, that line will always be connected.
"As I grieve the sudden death of my husband, my students warm my heart. #grief #love #loss" she captioned the heartwarming post.
Very soon many internet users were headed to the comment section to share their thoughts on the sweet note and also to share some kind words with the grieving wife. Read a few of their comments below:
"I’ve never had the feeling of space held for grief more completely than my 10th Graders did when I lost a baby. One student would come to my classroom after school and just sit there. He’d read a book or chat with me, but I knew he was checking in. Another asked how I was daily."
"My grandmother died my first year teaching, and a little girl who had lost her dad climbed a tree as high as she could so she could be close to the sky and tell her dad to look out for her."
In another touching Briefly.co.za report, most teachers would easily resort to punishment if they ever encountered a stubborn learner who did not abide by the school’s rules. However, Jason Smith, the principal of US school Stonybrook Intermediate and Middle School, is a different breed.
The patient man noticed that one student insisted on wearing a hat to class. This went against the institution’s regulations. The young boy was sent to Jason’s office and the outcome of the encounter could have easily been a suspension or detention.
Instead, the principal sat the boy down, had a pep talk and proceeded to organise a barber's haircut. The young boy admitted he had been in the wrong and apologised for disrupting the lesson.
