Stranded Driver Teaches Class From Pa. Turnpike During Massive Pileup
LOWER SOUTHAMPTON, Pa., (CBS) — One teacher continued her lesson plan Friday morning, despite being stranded on the Pennsylvania Turnpike following the massive crash (See Related Story).
Lynn McNulty teaches AP European History and was on the way to the Hun School in Princeton.
She says she knew she was going to be late so she decided to take out her iPad and teach class as she sat in the pileup.
“Well, I started to have a little panic melt down about I don’t want to miss another day of classes, so that’s when I thought okay I’ll be able to FaceTime in as long as I can get in touch with the students for them to FaceTime me and then that’s what I did,” she said.
McNulty said some of her students thought she slept in, but they believed her once she showed them the pileup.
She says students have missed school due to snow and she refused to miss another class discussion.
