This Strict Teacher Had A Secret. When The Students Discovered It, They Were Shocked!

We all have that dark room inside us in which we keep our secrets, that room cannot be accessed by anyone else except us. But, what if someday someone unlocks the door of that room, gets in, and discovers the most protected secret of yours. A similar thing happened with Jim O' Conner, a math teacher at St. Francis High School, California. The students knew the 70-year-old Vietnam veteran as strict and boring. What they discovered about him changed the way they looked at him forever.

Pat learned something even more unbelievable. Actually Jim cuddled kids, three days a week for past 20 years when he was not torturing students with calculus, stepping in when parents can't.

Jim visits patients who need a little extra care because they are lonely, fussy, scared or have no parents. Only 550 volunteers have been given the TLC designation, which is reserved for the most seasoned helpers.
