Every so often, a teacher and a student are able to share a special bond. Generally what happens, is that the pupil genuinely respects and admires the teacher, and is inspired to reach their goals because of a few encouraging words. Unfortunately, in this case, the teacher decided that neither of their lives were worth continuing. What a professional would have done, was redirect the interests of the 8th grader into something constructive. This lady simply said, "Nope, you don't have a chance."
