A day after her brain surgery, an elementary school teacher hosted a Facebook Live storytime with her students.
K.D. Meucci — a fourth-grade teacher at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School in Pennsylvania — made sure to connect with her online reading group despite having had a tumor removed a day prior, According to WTAE local station.
Meucci created Franklin Bedtime Stories — a closed Facebook group — some years ago so students could read a bedtime story to their friends at school.
According to the teacher, the tumor was “probably benign,” According to the outlet, she was removed from her classroom this week because she wanted to let students know she was fine.
“Most importantly, I wanted to see you, to see that I’m OK. I look a little funky, but I wanted you to see it and know that I’m OK,” Meucci spoke in the video.
“I want you to know that I love you and I miss you, and I know you’re going to have a great day tomorrow, strong and brave, and I’m proud of you, Ben Franklin, so you have a good night I love you, miss and I’ll see you soon friends.”
According to Meucci, Meucci continues to heal after the procedure.
