I spend so much time teaching my students safer, kinder, and more productive ways to solve problems and express disappointment, fear and anger. I do hope none of their parents let them see the news yesterday, or let them watch it at all this week.
My heart hurts for the young children who were likely NOT at home last night, safe and sound in bed, during the chaos in Ferguson. Imagine what they saw. Imagine what they felt.
Imagine what they learned.
My thoughts go out to you, their teachers as well.
