Sometimes teaching is sitting down in the middle of the hallway with a kid who is having a rough time and having a heart to heart.
The child in the photo has been having a hard time since we got back from winter break, acting out in class and his teacher couldn’t find a way to reach him. So Mr. Bailey figured he may need more of a father figure to help figure out what was wrong.
I didn’t hear much of the conversation – just that the student was being picked on at school and that the teacher was trying to lift the kid’s spirits and help him out of the situation. My co-worker saw I had the phone in my hand and told me to take it, so I took a quick snap and walked away. I didn’t want to interrupt the moment.
