"Some teachers go all out for their students, they will do just about anything to help you succeed"

Kimmy Lopez posted was worried that caring for her son would prevent her from completing her high school education. But when she explained her concerns to the administrators of the Massachusetts re-engagement program that she was in enrolled in, they told her to bring her child to school with her.

In the caption of a picture Lopez posted to Facebook on Monday, she said one of her teachers went above the call of duty to help her.

“To the right is my old teacher Mr. Guy…holding my 10 month old son while I was in class,” she wrote. “I had no daycare for my son. I thought it would stop me from finishing school but once I told the administrators my issue they told me to bring him to school with me. They set up a play pen in their office, brought toys and snacks for my baby, he even took my son to run errands with him, all so that I could come to school every day, study peacefully and focus on my books so that I graduate with my class.”

Lopez said her teacher went the extra mile to make sure she was able to achieve her educational goals. “Some teachers go all out for their students, they will do just about anything to help you succeed,” she said.
