I Had a Plan
When I was a teacher, I formulated a plan after a spate of mass shootings in the late 1990 and early 2000s. My classroom was in a quadrangle of portable classrooms and located at one corner of the quad. My plan, if I saw a person with a weapon enter the quad, was to flick off the lights and push out the screen to the window that overlooked a narrow dirt area bordering the road behind our school that lead to the community college.

My Kindergarten/first grade partners and I also had a plan. Luckily up until my last few years of teaching when I was also In a potable, we had adjoining doors that went into each other’s room.. That made it much easier to formulate an escape plan with multiple adults. Totally agree with the need to change Gun Laws! Thank you for sharing, P.I.C..
