Bridging The Gap

Teacher, 26, tells how she adopted troublesome student, 14, and his brother despite him nearly making her quit.

A 26-year-old woman destined to teach turned the life around for her turbulent student, along with his baby brother.

In 2013, Chelsea Haley began working with Teach For America, a nonprofit that helps 'strengthen the movement for educational equity and excellence' within low-income schools, the organization's mission statement reads.

Haley was enlisted as a 'corp member,' according to her LinkedIn page, to educate elementary students in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

That's where she met fourth grader Jerome Robinson - her toughest, most disorderly student.

A 26-year-old woman destined to teach turned the life around for her turbulent student, along with his baby brother.

In 2013, Chelsea Haley began working with Teach For America, a nonprofit that helps 'strengthen the movement for educational equity and excellence' within low-income schools, the organization's mission statement reads.

Haley was enlisted as a 'corp member,' according to her LinkedIn page, to educate elementary students in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

That's where she met fourth grader Jerome Robinson - her toughest, most disorderly student.

Eventually, other teachers in the school learned Haley was the only one able to help Robinson - who she disciplined while also encouraged to be better.

'I got a lot of thankful emails and knocks on my door,' Haley explained of her conversations with other teachers at the school.

By the time Haley was nearing the end of her two-year journey with Teach For America, she and Robinson had formed an 'unlikely bond' that couldn't have ended just there.

The principal at the school suggested Robinson 'stick around for Jerome,' according to CNN, and Haley had a dream after she said she felt was 'God telling her she was destined to be' his mother.

Shockingly, the very next day, in October 2015, Robinson paused from taking a test to ask her a question.
