Heartbreaking Photo of Sick Teacher Completing Students Grade Before Passing Away Shared by Lady Netizen
A lady netizen has posted the photo of her beloved dad completing the grades of his students a day before he passed away.
A Facebook user named Sandra A. Venegas has shared the heartbreaking photo of her father completing the grades of its students while lying at the hospital bed. The post garnered various reactions from the online community.
Venegas took the picture a day before her dad Alejandro Navarro passed away. The male teacher kept on finalizing the grades and the progress report while the doctors are running some medical tests.
Sandra expressed her regret wishing that she had closed her dad’s laptop and enjoyed spending time with him. She also clarified that her father did not died from coronavirus disease or any related diseases.
The lady netizen also raised the public awareness regarding the effort of teachers just fulfill their duty. Educators are spending many extra hours working even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here is the full post:
, the day before he passed, worried about finalizing grades for progress reports. He knew he was going to the ER so he packed his laptop and charger so he could enter them.
Doctors were coming in to see him. They were running tests, they were telling him he needed to decide what he wanted in the event that his heart stopped: CPR and intubation or to go in peace. He’d answer their questions and resume with grades.
The last time I saw him was Monday and he spent the two hours I was at his house working. I wish I would have closed his laptop and enjoyed spending time with him.
Teachers put in so many extra hours, hours that many don’t realize. Even during a pandemic, even during a health crisis, teachers worry about completing their duties.
Thank your teachers. If you are married to one, help them set boundaries, if you are the daughter/son of one, don’t let them work once they’re home. Be kind to your teachers.
Teachers let’s not normalize working after hours, let’s not normalize staying at work late. You are replaceable at work. You are NOT replaceable at home.
*Edited to Add: I didn’t realize this post would get so much attention but I did want to clarify, my father did not pass away from Covid or anything Covid related.”
