School Shooting Showcases the Heroic Nature of Brilliant Teachers

Connecticut School Shooting

Next time you consider tearing strips of your child’s classroom teacher for failing to live up to your lofty standards, consider that perhaps, given the opportunity, that same teacher would take a bullet for your child:

An 8-year-old student and his mother are thanking a teacher for saving the boy from bullets fired at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where a mass shooting at the Newtown, Conn., school Friday left at least 27 dead and others wounded.

“I’m just so grateful to the teacher who saved him, she definitely [saved his life],” the mother told WCBS-TV’s Lou Young of the unidentified Sandy Hook Elementary School teacher. “He had bullets going by him and another child, and pulled them into a classroom.”

The one known shooter, reported to be the father of a student, is dead following the shooting. Police are investigating whether a second shooter was involved.

The alleged shooter entered the school at around 9:40 a.m., about 30 minutes after the school day began. At least eighteen children are among the the casualties.
