Way To Go! Temple Police Officer Steps In To Help Students And Teacher In Need
Our schools are struggling to serve students right now due to the pandemic and other factors, and when a Temple, Texas cop saw that a helping hand was needed to mold young minds, he stepped up to do the right thing.
Put Down the Badge and Pick Up the Chalk
KCEN-TV's Jasmin Caldwell shared the story of Temple PD Officer Undrea Mitchell, who was happy to step into the classroom when a Temple ISD sub suddenly had to call out.
Officer Mitchell ended up filling in to teach AP Science at Travis Science Academy back in January. He not only delivered a lesson on the parts of the atom and their discovery, and even gave a quiz on the topic. (Ok, maybe the kids didn't like that last part.) The officer said he has a passion for science anyway, so it sounds to me like this was a perfect fit.
This Is the Serve Part of Protect & Serve in Action
I find Jasmin's report to be absolutely inspiring. Officer Mitchell understands that it takes a village for us to mold these young minds into something great. The fact that he took civil duty to another level is absolutely amazing.
Truly An Inspiration
I remember when I was in school and science was my favorite subject. I thought I would grow up one day and be the scientist who discovered a cure for cancer. Obviously I've taken a very different path in life, but I still admire those great educators who inspire their students and encourage them to be whatever they set their minds to.
I guarantee you none of the students in that classroom will ever forget Officer Mitchell or how he inspired them. What a great role model.
I want to say thank you to Officer Mitchell. You are absolutely amazing, and it does not go unnoticed.
