Teacher saves students from Oklahoma tornado

Teachers are individuals that help shape our lives every day.  During the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma, one teacher, Rhonda Crosswhite, took her role to a new level when she saved the lives of her students.

When the tornado went through Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Oklahoma, Rhonda protected several students from harm.

"I was in a [bathroom] stall with some kids and it just started coming down, so I laid on top of them", Rhonda stated on the Today show.  She continued to keep them calm. 'We're going to be fine, we're going to be fine, I'm protecting you. 'And then I said a few prayers. 'God please take care of my kids.' And we're fine."

 

And that's what's good,

First grader hits free throw to win day off for all students

  • Published in Sports

Everyone wishes they could have a day off on the Monday after the Super Bowl. 

Mater Dei School in Maryland decided to make things interesting.  They told all of the students that they could have Monday off if and only if a first grader made a free throw shot. 

Blake Harper stepped up to the free throw line and threw the ball in the air.   The whole crowd of students held their breath.

The teachers were probably thinking that this ball would never go in the hoop….but it did :)

Watch the awesome clip and check out the crowd's reaction!




And that's what's good,
Jon
