How could someone do such a hateful thing?
Nearly a year ago as we were teaching we heard just a trickle of information through parents and on the web. We knew there was a school shooting. We knew students were killed. We didn't really have many of the facts until much later.
All of it broke my heart.
I hugged my kids a little tighter that day...every day the rest of December.
I'm the kind of teacher that tells my kids that I love them. I told them I loved them a LOT in December.
The people of Newtown, CT would like us to commit RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS December 14 in order to honor the teachers and students of Sandy Hook School. Isn't that a wonderful? So simple! Pass along some kindness.
**As educators, we remember and honor our fallen colleagues and their students from Sandy Hook School. We honor them each day in our classrooms in which we continue their dream of teaching our children. We honor their memory with our service. Join with teachers everywhere in committing random acts of kindness to show our love for Sandy Hook.**
Big thank you and big hug to Greg from Kindergarten Smorgasboard who organized all of these posts bringing together bloggers from all over! XO
