For the first time in my teaching career, I am faced with a new challenge this week. Without saying too much for privacy purposes, I will only share the basic facts. A student of mine lost a parent this weekend in a car accident and the other parent is in critical condition.
Please say a prayer for this student as he/she will be going through extreme emotions and a difficult time ahead. I pray for peace, comfort, and support for this student. I also pray that I have the right words to say to my class tomorrow and to my student when he/she comes back to school.
