A teacher’s message has gone viral after he let his student sleep in class.
Teachers spend so much time preparing lesson plans and trying to engage students in learning. Surely a child nodding off in the middle of class would get kicked out and sent to the office, right?
Well not in the case of high school English teacher Monte Syrie, who sees things very differently.
In a Twitter thread, he explained why he didn’t take it personally when his student Meg fell asleep.
“I think too often the biggest thing that people forget about high school students is that they are kids,” Syrie says. “They’re kids — kids who are having to grow up way too fast and are having way too much pressure put on them, in and out of school … even for our best and brightest, that pressure gets to be too much.”
