It's a sad day today...

I came to school this morning and Ella told me she had sad news... Kristen (one of my closest 6th grade students),'s mom died this morning of liver disease. What's even more devastating is that her dad passed away a year and a half ago, and she and her sister (junior high age) are now all alone. My heart is absolutely breaking for her today, as I'm sure she's heartbroken and scared... Kristen, who's Korean name is 유라 (pronounced Yura), is such a sweet and happy girl! I hate to see this happen to any of my students, but especially her.

She is always with me, but hates to have her picture taken... so this is an old picture that I took last year. Tomorrow, Ella, Lee (Kristen's current teacher) and I are going to attend the funeral after school. If you are a person who believes in prayer, please pray for this sweet girl and her sister!


  1. I'm so sorry to hear this. Does she have family to stay with?

  2. Apparently, she is going to be living with her single uncle. :(
