A picture sent to FOX13 in Memphis, Tennessee, of a Whitney Elementary School teacher taking the time to walk children home from school is making the rounds on the Internet.

Carl Schneider, a third-grade teacher at Whitney, told FOX13 that he and two other teachers, Auriel Rolle-Polk and Kevin Sullivan, walk children home from school every day.

Chris Hill, director of communications for the Achievement School District said, Whitney is a neighborhood school. Principal Debra Broughton felt that some of the children needed to be safely walked home from school. A few teachers volunteer to walk them home.

Each of them walks 10-15 children each day.

When it comes to children, Schneider says, “It takes a village.”
