Upworthy handpicked this video from Jamie McSparin, a teacher at Oak Park High School in Kansas City, Missouri. McSparin recognized the students at her school go through tough times on occasion, and she wanted to do something to show them how important they are to their teachers. So she gathered several other teachers at Oak Park together and asked them to pick one student and share why that student inspires them to come to work every day. On camera.
