Kentucky.- A teacher went viral for a thoughtful act that ensured that no students felt excluded. Jim Freeman, a teacher at Tully Elementary School in Louisville, Kentucky, was taking a student class to Ohio Falls for an excursion last week. However, a 10-year-old girl named Ryan, who has spina bifida and uses a wheelchair, thought she would not be able to attend the group trip as the falls are not accessible to her.
Her mother, Shelly King, wrote on the Facebook page «Team Ryan» that she was planning an «alternative field trip day» for her daughter when Freeman contacted the family and offered to «take [Ryan] around the falls all day,» King.King wrote she wrote that the sweet gesture touched her, and that Ryan was excited to be able to go with his classmates.
She is excited to do this independently of me,» she wrote, along with photos of the tour showing Ryan enjoying her time. Oh my god, this melts my heart
For the trip, Ryan was put on a carrier that Freeman had on his back during the day.
We are very blessed to have a COMPLETE school that is so compassionate and empathetic and NEVER makes you feel excluded, King said on Facebook.
The actions beyond the teacher have been praised everywhere, and many have called it «wonderful» and «loving» and congratulated the school for its «loving teachers». Teacher is fired for calling his students «demons»
