An excerpt from a heart-warming article I read today:
A teacher was asked by a high school student what to do if a shooter came into their classroom:
“I want you to know that I care deeply about each and every one of you and that I will do everything I can to protect you,” she relayed to them. “But – being in a wheelchair, I will not be able to protect you the way an able-bodied teacher will. And if there is a chance for you to escape, I want you to go. Do not worry about me. Your safety is my number one priority.”
Absolutely heartbreaking and a testament to the kind of truly selfless educator she is, no doubt. But her students had a plan of their own. The class remained quiet for a moment, then a single student raised her hand.
She said, “Mrs. Schimmoeller, we already talked about it. If anything happens, we are going to carry you.”
