That was until about 60 teachers and staff of the Palm Beach County School system is strengthened when the world history teacher Robert Goodman issued a plea on Facebook. They donated enough days to his name, that he will not have to return to Palm Beach Gardens high School until January.
The Palm Beach Post reports that Goodman has been overwhelmed by the response.
Kindergarten teacher Dawn McKeich don’t know Goodman, but said that they will pay forward the kindness fellow teachers found out that her kidneys failed. She missed more than a month of school and teachers formed a meal train for her family.
