Sending love to Connecticut

I don't have my own children yet, but sometimes I feel like I have them. 200, to be exact. I am a substitute and aftercare teacher, who works with at least 50 different children every day and has gotten to know almost everyone in the school I work at. I really, truly love my job - even though its not full time yet, it's full time hours, and I get to work with kids all day, every day. I'm so grateful.

That's why yesterday hurt so badly. I didn't know what happened until after I had gotten out of aftercare. We actually had a lockdown drill in the afternoon, which I realize now must have been a response to what was happening in Connecticut. As a teacher and a human being, I'm shocked, and my heart hurts for everyone associated with the school. I try to keep my blog a positive place, but today, I just needed to say this. I'm sending my love to CT today.

  1. I just read about it half an hour ago (someone mentioned it on their blog). Appalling! Absolutely horrible!

  2. As a retired teacher, I agree with you. Unspeakable tragedy.
