I suppose it happens to nearly all teachers at some point and tonight it has happened to me.
At approximately 7pm I got an email to notify me that a student I had taught 2 years ago had passed away.
I am grief stricken. He was only 12 years old!
Words fail me. I had a great connection with this child. I felt I understood him like no other teacher.
And now he’s gone and it will take me a while to get over it.
They tell you not to get emotionally involved but it is absolutely impossible.
Especially with students like him.
Rest in Peace!
