Glad this did not happen in one of my schools-  How can teachers be better trained so this would never happen?

What's odd is that the school nurse told reporters she knew the shooter, Adam Lanza, and his mother was a Kindergarten teacher at the school...but police have reported otherwise. The last I heard from police was that Nancy Newtown volunteered at the school last year in the class he did most of the shooting, in which 20 children were killed. Also, Victoria Soto's class was the second classroom he entered and began killing students after he shot their teacher, at least six ran out and survived and about ten were hidden in the classroom thanks to their teacher, but he shot others who were trying to flee, along with the teacher.

 

I wonder why he spared the school nurses life and if he did know her if he had some kind of admiration or respect for her and that's why he spared her life??
