This Photo Of A Teacher Walking His Third Graders Home From School Goes Viral

Whitney Elementary School has some very special teachers. Carl Schneider is a third grade teacher and he and two other teachers walk their kids home from school every day.  “I was kind of surprised {at all the attention we have received}, but at the same time I’m also really glad that people know the teachers in this community are really invested in the community.”




FOX 13 reported that the teachers have been walking their students one and a half miles trek for three years now. There are about  40 students in total that they walk home. Principal Debra Broughton says the effort started when the administration realized there was a need in the community for “children to be able to get home safely,” but admits its turned into much more than just a safety exercise. Teachers are using the time to connect with students on a more personal level, and interacting with their parents, as well.  “I have a student on a behavior so every day I give his dad a copy of his behavior sheet and we have a quick debrief about the behavior of the day,” said Schneider. “I don’t teach kindergarten but I have three to four kindergartners who look for me every day and we all hold hands and walk together.”

This is incredible!
