Chicago Public Schools teachers help patients keep up with school work

Being in the hospital is difficult, but returning to school after missing a large amount of class time is even harder.

Did you know our hospital has teachers to help patients keep up with school work? Shriners Hospital for Children — Chicago recently started working with Chicago Public Schools (CPS) to provide teachers who work with long-term patients. The CPS Office of Diverse Learner Supports and Services sends two teachers every weekday to offer instruction and homework assistance.

We’re grateful for Mr. Shelton and Ms. McClure who come to the Chicago Shriners Hospital, and all the great teachers who play a critical role in educating and shaping our children.

Teachers are kind, patient, hardworking, dedicated and understanding professionals who mold our children’s lives in a positive direction.

You can find more information about our services and programs for patients and their families on our website and our Facebook page.
