A special needs teacher in Mexico has set up her pick-up truck so she can give private lessons to her students during the pandemic.
The teacher, identified only as Nay, is a differential education teacher and works with children with disabilities and learning difficulties in the municipality of Apaseo el Grande in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato.
The image was shared with the post: “This is Nay, a special needs teacher from Calvillo. Se adapted her pick-up truck, making it into a mobile classroom to be able to go house to house and visit her students as well as following safety measurements.”
According to local media, the suspension of face-to-face classes and the implementation of social distancing in the education system has proved difficult for those students who do not have access to the internet or other digital platforms.
The image shows the teacher wearing a mask and sat alongside her student in the red truck which has a desk and two chairs.
The image has been liked over 15 thousand times and shared by 9.4 thousand social media users, many of whom applauded the teacher’s commitment.
One netizen wrote: “My respects to Miss Nay, that really is loving your job. God bless you.”
Whilst another user commented: “What a praiseworthy attitude and great example, my sincere congratulations to this person who makes their job into something so beautiful.”
According to the latest figures from the Johns Hopkins University, Mexico has registered 159,793 cases of COVID-19 with 19,850 related deaths.
