Sometime last week, New York City public school teacher, Ms. Courtney Gallagher of Rockaway Beach shared a story of a heartwarming surprise from her third graders. “My students are so thoughtful and amazing! For my birthday they got me tickets to see Cole Swindell!” the third grade teacher shared via Facebook. “How do they know I like Cole Swindell? Well, when I’m testing them or reading individually, I tell them, “Please do not interrupt me unless there’s a fire, someone is bleeding, or Cole Swindell walks through the door,” Gallagher continued, “I love my students and my job.”
The humorous way of keeping the children’s attention while learning clearly left an impact on them. Approaching the beloved teacher’s birthday, the resourceful students took matters into their own hands and with the help of their parents, they came together to present Ms. Gallagher with Cole Swindell tickets to show their appreciation for their teacher.
Educators change lives every day and it is so important to make sure that they know they are appreciated. The sweet gesture from her young students along with their parents is evidence of their love for the special teachers in their lives.
Ms. Gallagher, thank you for inspiring the lives of these little individuals each and every day. On behalf of NYCountry Swag, we are hooking you up with a pair of Meet & Greets to meet Cole Swindell the day of the show. Enjoy the concert and thank you for everything you do!
Cole Swindell heads out on the road this summer with Luke Bryan on the “Sunset Repeat” Tour. The tour kicks off this May in Philadelphia and runs through October. The Sunset Repeat Tour will return to the New York Area on July 13th at Northwell Health Jones Beach Theatre.
