I would like to take a moment to remember the families and victims of Sept 11th attack. I was working second shift and a friend of mine and I were watching t.v. As  I got ready.  At first I thought it was... Well I’m not sure what I thought. As I watched on live television, the news reporters started becoming hysterical and confused....another attack. I went to work that evening and I wa in tears. The sad truth is, no one at my work seemed to care. They almost made fun of me for being emotional. I don’t work there anymore and to this day have harsh feelings towards my former coworkers. I pray I can forgive. I pray for those families. May they find peace.

    • I was teaching kindergarten that day.  The teacher I worked with was teaching the children a lesson and I was in the back checking their homework.  Our asst. principal came in our portable room and whispered to me that one of the twin towers had been hit by an airplane.  She stated they wanted all the staff to know in case they had family working in the towers but not to let the children know ANYTHING...and not to discuss it with any other teachers in front of the children.  At first I sat there and thought it was an accident.  About 20 minutes later my asst. principal came back out to our room and whispered to me again that another tower had been hit and that they now believe the country is under attack.  I was mortified.  It was a horrible ...very quiet day.  Every staff member made sure that the children were unaware until parents started coming to the school and signing out their kids.  They were very safe but with what was transpiring and they were seeing all of this on tv could not blame them for wanting their children with them?  The next day we were prompted on how to react to the children if they spoke of the events from the guidance counselor.  We let them speak but did not offer advice but just reassured them they were safe. It was a horrific week.  heartbreak

    • I was teaching my students. A parent came to have her child dismissed early . She is the one who told me. It was unreal to hear news of this nature! I was horrified to hear the news and to compound my feelings was the fact that the principal or staff never informed me about what had occurred.
