Teacher Keller Sutherland is on her way home from school in South Carolina when she spots one of her former pupils, Cameron Simoncic, cycling along the highway. She can immediately tell that things aren’t right and that he needs someone’s help. And when she pulls over to find out what’s going on, it turns into a race against time to get medical assistance.
Ever since Sutherland became a school teacher, her commitment to her students has gone – by her own admission – way above the duties of her job and the time that she spends with children inside the classroom. In fact, the general happiness of each and every one of her pupils is genuinely important to her.
For instance, in a video posted on Facebook by Greenville County Schools in February 2019, Sutherland explained exactly what motivates her as an educator. She said, “When I see myself as a teacher, I just go far beyond the classroom. I truly care for these kids.”
