Teacher Resigns to Save the Job of Another

Ad Feedback

The Bible teaches to put others before yourself. And that is exactly what one North Carolina teacher did for his coworker.

Long-time teacher Jim Bell sacrificed his own job for the sake of a fellow teacher.

Bell taught social studies to thousands of kids throughout the years at Owen Middle School.

He intended to continue a few more years before retiring.

But budget cuts and the prospect of three teachers losing their jobs forced him to make a tough decision.

"It's time for me to get out and I did," Bell said. "If one of them got kicked out - they may not ever go back. He's such a good man and I know he saw me in tears that day and I know he was put in a tough spot," he added.

Bell says he resigned to make room for new, younger teachers

He hopes they'll touch as many lives as he has.
