Teacher Visits Their Student With Leukemia At Home Every Day To Help Study

Here's today's feel-good story:

Veteran teacher, Barb Heim's workday is not over until she makes the 20-minute trip from school to a student who is in the fight of their life.

Heim has worked for 35 years as a first-grade teacher at Conneaut Valley Elementary School in Conneautville, PA. She goes the extra mile to help Harrison Conner keep a good attitude and help with his learning as he battles leukemia.
