The mission of Charlottesville Public Schools is to make sure every child gets a quality education; including the ones who can't physically be in the classroom.
Over twenty local teachers work and volunteer in the University of Virginia Health System's Hospital Education Program; teaching students of all ages who are too sick for the classroom.
The teachers say they aren't the only ones doing the teaching.
"It's an amazing place to work. I always learn something new every single day. There's not a day that goes by that I don't learn something," said Norma Dobbins, the NICU teacher.
The program sees close to 2,000 students every year.
The students take part in every subject from physical education to music.
