Former students reach out to retired Everett teacher
EVERETT, Mass. (WHDH) -- Mary Dorn’s former Spanish students from Everett High School are helping the retired teacher reconnect with her past.
The 94-year-old taught for 30 years in the district; but now, in her retirement home, she said she was all alone.
That all changed when a man working in the senior home posted on Facebook asking her former students to go visit her.
“I feel like I’m back at high school. When I was younger and could enjoy life,” Dorn said.
The man who asked Dorn’s former students to go and visit her posted that he was sad she was so lonely.
“It broke my heart to see this 94-year-old, quick-witted woman have tears roll down her face as she tells me she is all alone,” he said.
