Sad News

Today, a mom of one of my students was murdered this morning. The student was at school when it happened and the cops came and got this student out of class and told the student. Our administrators weren't allowed to say anything. It was just the two of them who lived in that house and it's believed that the boyfriend was the one who killed her. I'm glad my student wasn't there when it happened but I'm devestated and so sad for this student. It seems like there are more and more murders lately in my hometown. Please say a little prayer for my student that he will have the strength to get through this tough time.

On a brighter note, I'm getting my visa and my mom's application filled out and sent to my agency since they have a visa service. It's due on Tuesday. Tomorrow is our last day for the week and my principal is going to take me and Shannon to lunch for Library Week (it was last week). My niece and I are going to finish her bracelets on Friday since we are off for Fiesta! YEA!

I came across your blog through RQ. I am so sorry to hear about your student's mother. That is terribly tragic, and much more than any child should ever have to handle. Do you mind me asking what grade you teach? I teach middle school, and honestly cannot fathom that happening. Our prayers are with you and this child.

Thank you. I am a middle school librarian (6th, 7th, & 8th) Thanks for the prayers. He's an awesome young man and I can't even imagine having your main parent being taken away from you so tragically.
