The subjects of this episode are Molly and Chris, two students Penny taught in one of her first years of teaching elementary school. They may be like students you have had in the past or may be like students you have right now. This story is a reminder that sometimes the most important, longest-lasting work a teacher does is based on circumstances that extend far beyond the classroom.
