Everyone in school banded together to be sure that our children were safe and well taken care of until they could be picked up by their parent or guardian. Although everyone was frightened and worried about what would happen next, our faculty remained calm and focused on the children. I was very proud of my colleagues on 9/11. They showed true strength and courage when it was most needed. Their dedication to their students was evident when they placed the students' needs first and did all they could to reassure and keep a sense of calm.
