A high school teacher in Ohio returned to class the day after the Parkland, FL shooting with a heavy heart.
She knew she needed to address her class about what to do if there was an active shooter situation at their school.
Except for Mrs. Schimmoeller the plan would be different: she has cerebral palsay and is in a wheelchair.
She lovingly told her students, "I want you to know that I care deeply about each and every one of you and that I will do everything I can to protect you. But — being in a wheelchair, I will not be able to protect you the way an able-bodied teacher will. And if there is a chance for you to escape, I want you to go. Do not worry about me. Your safety is my number one priority."
That's when her students gave her instant chills. One student raised her hand and said, " 'Mrs. Schimmoeller, we already talked about it. If anything happens, we are going to carry you.' "
