New Hartford Teacher Gets ‘Bird-Bombed’ During Story Time Video
It's pretty challenging to be a teacher right now - and many are going above and beyond for their students. A New Hartford teacher decided to do a Facebook Live for her students - but a hawk had other ideas.
Melissa Curtis teaches at Myles Elementary School in New Hartford. She's been recording a 'storytime' for her students since the school shutdown began. She was reading her 30th story when a hawk decided to protest - in his own way.
Melissa was about 1/3 of the way through a book about springtime when a hawk flew overhead and...well...pooped on Melissa. And her car.
Melissa says "I was laughing so hard once I stopped recording! I read books to the kids every weeknight and that was apparently the celebration of my 30th read aloud haha."
We reminded Melissa that getting pooped on a by a bird can mean good luck, "If it is, I got plenty!"
