Hospice Worker Sang A Sweet Song To His Old Music Teacher.

It's been said time and time again that teachers do more than instruct the daily lesson plans to their students. Teachers are known to use their own money to buy school supplies, food, and even clothes for those pupils whose families just cannot afford it. They do it without expecting adulation or a salary bonus. This is their passion, to see their students become the best version of themselves.

Not every pupil keeps in touch with their former teachers, but they will always remember what that adult meant to them. Educators understand that their students are always watching them and it's not just for what the homework will be. It's how they speak and treat others that may be the biggest lesson they give in their classrooms.
