Southern Teacher Scores Big for Students
Last week fifth-grade students at Southern got a big virtual surprise. Will Parks, a Philadelphia Eagles defensive back, joined the students on a video call! Teacher Emily Schussler reached out to him through social media, and she was thrilled when he jumped at the opportunity to interact with students and his young fans.
He greeted each student by their name and checked in with them to see how they were doing. He made sure to ask them if they were doing their schoolwork and also told them he’s a phone call away if they need anything. He even gave a personal shout out to one boy who has been completing all of his work.
