Just turned off the news to pause…our hearts are broken in the global teacher community as we learn about the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary.
We chose the field of education because we know that children will secure our future. Teachers sacrifice many hours of their own time and money to reach every child sitting in their classroom. Principals and administration teams ensure teachers and parents are supported in their lofty goal to see every student reach their potential.
So, we can’t even begin to imagine how to process an incident such as what happened today, what kind of life events put this act in motion. The Engage community mourns with those that have lost their children, their teachers, their community. May we never forget; love your kids, appreciate your teachers, support your staff.
How sad is this news. I agree Theresa, it's hard to process what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Every educator knows, it could have been their school, their children. My thoughts and prayers are with Newtown.
