The kids that were in elementary school in 2012 are my high school students now. They don’t mess around during lockdown drills. I can remember those days after that shooting so clearly…making snowflakes and having holiday parties, trying to make my classroom cheerful and fun when everyone was on pins and needles.

I cannot fathom trying to do my job and also carry a gun. Ridiculous.

I published this story last week after the CA shooting…seems like we have similar experiences.

Big fan of good books, funny looking animals, and great stories. Always ready for the next big thing.
