A Teacher’s Plea for Prayers
Being forced into a different career path at 63 was certainly not my choice. John Marshall Middle School was not my first choice to land at as a teacher. With that said, please pray for me and the rest of our teachers.
Every day has been difficult, but yesterday was the worst. During another riot two of our female teachers were taken to ground, kicked and repeatedly hit. One teacher was transported by ambulance to the hospital. The other was treated at the scene. I myself was hit and repeatedly pushed around in my wheelchair while in a middle of the mob attempting to protect the teachers on the ground.
This is not the first riot like this. I have witnessed too many students taken away in handcuffs. I have been cursed everyday and truly teach in fear. Pray for God’s spirit to fall on our school.
