We consider teachers as a student’s second parent because most of our younger years are spent in school.

But a Connecticut teacher stayed true to that role.

When her student and his parents tested positive for COVID-19, she stepped in when they needed someone to look after their newborn.

On Facebook, netizen Joy Colon shared how her fellow teacher, Luciana Lira received an unusual call from the mother of one of her students.

According to Joy, the woman on the phone sounded distressed and that she was calling from the hospital.

Apparently, one of Luciana’s student’s mother, tested positive for COVID-19 as she was about to give birth.

The baby’s father, also expecting to test positive for COVID-19, asked Luciana to take home the baby for the meantime.

They needed someone to look after their baby, until their whole family recovers from the virus.

“Luciana went to that hospital that day to help. A week later the test results came back. Both the father and her student tested positive,” Joy narrated.

Luciana’s selflessness amazed the pediatrician and Joy.

“She had only known this family since the beginning of the school year, and it was only because their 7-year-old was her student. They were virtually strangers to one another. And yet, my friend did what truly good people do,” Joy said.
