News 8, WTNH-TV, spoke with several of our School of Education juniors about the teaching profession following the tragedy in Sandy Hook.
Among their thoughts:
Nina Shewokis: “You have a huge impact on every part of their lives. You want to be part of that. You want to be ale to make a difference.”
Victoria Formica: “You would hope that if you are ever put in that same situation, you would do the same thing for your kids because when you are a teacher, they are like your kids, you want to protect them as much as you can.”
Alex Burgos: “I had such great history teachers. They just made me want to take what I learned from them and pass it onto other people.”
Chris Caldari: “You never really think about the unexpected but life is crazy. Sometimes they throw in curve balls. I guess you just gotta adjust, if circumstance happens, that you have to deal with something like that, you have to be ready for it.”
