PASCO COUNTY, Fla. — Teachers from a Pasco County elementary school wanted to show their students how much they missed them on Wednesday.

The teachers from Sanders Memorial Elementary lined up their cars with messages of just how much they miss their students. They expected five teachers, but at least 30 showed up.

“We just want them to know that we are there and we are working together and we are going to have a really successful rest of the year,” said teacher Elizabeth Richardson.

Before virtual school starts next week, these teachers gave some drive-by love rolling through several Land O’Lakes neighborhoods.

“All the teachers miss our kids so much that we felt like we had to reach out to the community and keep our distance, but at the same time show the love and show them how much we miss and care for them,” said teacher Wendy Pineo.

For the kids, it was a break outdoors as they tried to spot their favorite teachers.

No one has ever been through anything like this, and no one is exactly sure how soon things will get back to normal.

But through this coronavirus pandemic, teachers just wanted to show their love for their students.
