“I think about every person who will walk into a school tomorrow who will struggle in some way returning to a job they love in an environment that has felt unsafe.”
"My boys, to get to school, that safe harbour, during certain times it's gang initiation, so when they get to us it's safe, but by the end of the day it's about survival. There's a real life threat for many of my children just to get to school."
“As teachers, we get professional development on what we do if there is a shooter in the building, but very rarely do we hear about, why are children acting out so violently?”
“School shootings are a sobering reality. 2018, according to national statistics, was the deadliest for American students and educators.”
“Why are so many students acting out in such a violent way, how do we identify these kids and get them help before they get to this point…If we can solve that, we don’t need to worry about barricading ourselves in.”
