Here’s a story to top all inspirational teacher stories. Sorry,valedictorians your fave teacher comes no where close to our woman crush.
When Detroit gym teacher Nadirah Muhammad found out her 18-year-old dance student A’Ja Booth was in need of a new kidney, she wasted no time offering hers last year.
And whaddayaknow they were a match!?
According to Global Grind, Nadirah’s kidney was removed seven months later at Henry Ford Hospital. Nadirah returned to class seven months later.
Just in time to see A’Ja graduate from West Side Academy next month.
This is what our Woman Crush–mom and wife too–told The Detroit News:
This is what we do as teachers. I did not do it for the accolades. I saw a human being in need and if it were my child, I’d want someone to step forward and help him.”
Here’s hoping there are more Nadirah’s out there.
