I have never been so hesitant to enter into school than I had today. However at the same time I could not wait to see my 19 little ones and just hug them all, tell them how much I care about them, and assure them that I would do everything in my power to protect them and keep them safe. Yet at the same moment being a teacher and protecting my 19 children at school I am a mother and I was extremely hesitant to send my child to school because in reality I know that you can't stop crazy and ultimately I know her teacher feels the same as I but we can't stop people who are willing to do such devastating things.
How were you all dealing with this situation? I have fourth graders so I feel like they understand a bit more than the younger kids however at the same time I wish they did not grasp the horrible concept. I also fear that there will be more questions as the week progresses and they interact with their peers. What were you saying in your classes?
Sending all my love and best with every teacher, parent, and caregiver out there. I know that everyone of us would do anything possible to keep our innocent children safe!
