Every once and a while, within the slight chaos that comes with teaching at the Street School, God gives our staff tiny glimpses into what He is doing within the hearts of our students.
A few weeks ago, I walked outside during E block to find Blair* sitting alone by the dumpster. When I asked her why she was ditching class, the floodgates opened up.
Her family had fallen apart before her eyes yet again; her dad had passed away over the summer, her mom was in jail, and she and her siblings had been placed in foster care for the “millionth time” in their lives. She was homesick and depressed, and understandably couldn’t muster up the intellectual or emotional strength to face algebra that day.
“I’m stuck, Miss. I’m stuck in this stupid world and it feels like no one cares about me.” She sobbed as she stared down at the concrete.
With a heavy heart, unable to offer her any solace that would be worthwhile, I prayed out loud that she would know and experience the Love of God and that He would be the one to get her “unstuck”.
