There are strict dress codes in many schools. Some schools allow students to wear their own clothing, while others require them to wear uniforms, while some schools require more formal attire for events like graduation.
Some students don’t have this kind of attire at home ready to wear for graduation.
It’s not easy being a teacher.
It’s tiring, it’s long hours, and sometimes you don’t get a thank you.
What makes it worth it? Your students. When a student loves you as much as you do!
Kids need some help from their teachers.
The teacher shared the story of his student in need at the graduation ceremony.
John posted a photo side-by-side with the student and shared that he was in a bind before the graduation ceremony started.
The student’s shoes were not proper for graduation.
It is shocking to hear that.
“Last minute before they close the doors to graduation. The young brother comes walking towards me in a panic.”
“He’s like, Mr. John they won’t let me graduate because I don’t have the proper shoes for the dress code,”
“he says the lady down there said I can’t walk to get my diploma because of the shoes I’m wearing,”
The teacher was shocked when he heard that was the truth.
“So then it becomes a no-brainer to me, a no more questions-asked scenario.
I gave him the shoes on my feet.”
“Here’s the funny part tho… my shoes were 2 sizes bigger than his, so when his name was called, he had to slide his feet like Sleestak across the stage to receive his diploma we had a good laugh,”
John was praised for being an excellent and caring teacher.
John’s story has been reshared over 20,000 times, with many people commenting on his character as a professional and a caring teacher.
He looked out for his students and put their needs first.
The general consensus is if you know anything about teachers.
They look out for their students.
What a touching story!
