My Students

I teach an extremely talented and unique group of fifth graders in Kentucky. They are both advanced program students and regular program students. Several of my students are from different countries.

We are considered a school with moderate poverty, but we do not qualify for additional state and government funds.

Each of our at-risk students needs the opportunity to have the same resources as students at other schools. My students are eager and excited. They are creative and want to learn more. They are eager and seek knowledge on a daily basis.

My Project

At the beginning of each school year, I teach my students how to behave during all types of drills; fire, earthquake, tornado and intruder. Our intruder drills have now changed to include active shooter drills.

Unfortunately, in the world we now live in, we must ask ourselves the essential question: What options do I have for survival, if I ever find myself in a violent intruder event?

Teaching adults how to handle this situation is difficult enough, let alone teaching 10 and 11 year olds how to act if there is an active shooter in the building. I recently went through ALiCE training and heard about the book, "I'm Not Scared...I'm Prepared!"

"I'm Not Scared…I'm Prepared!" will enhance the concepts taught in my ALiCE Training, and make them applicable to children of all ages in a non-fearful way. By using this book, children can develop a better understanding of what needs to be done if they ever encounter a "dangerous someone."

I can use this book year after year to help my students understand what they need to do if we ever have an active shooter in the building.
