Meet high school English teacher Monte Syrie. Syrie recently took to Twitter to tell the story of one of his students falling asleep while she was in his class. However, instead of criticizing her or even telling a story of waking her via a good ol’ fashioned textbook slap to the desk, he defended her and let her sleep.
His opinion to do so might not sit well with teachers across the board, but his reasoning behind why he did it raises a very interesting and insightful point. In my humble opinion, we could use a lot more teachers like Monte. Check out the story below.
