Wheelchair-Bound Teacher Moved To Tears By Students’ Response To Her School Shooting Instructions

Following the Florida school shooting event, a school teacher from Ohio shares a touching response from her students and the emotional conversation is viral in the internet! Marissa Schimmoeller is a wheelchair bound teacher. She was already nervous about talking to her students about what to do in case of a school shooting. But her students’ touching response had her in tears! This beautiful conversion is now reaching millions, restoring the hope in young generation and their immense love!

 

“If anything happens we are going to carry you” ! Worth listening their loving conversation! Filled with emotions, the teacher penned down the entire conversations for the word to see it!

“Today was the first time I had to teach the day after a mass school shooting. I dreaded facing my students this morning, and as the first students walked in, I began to feel the anxiety pooling in my stomach.”

“Soon after class began, a freshman asked me the question I had been dreading since I had heard about the tragedy in Florida.”

“Mrs. Schimmoeller,” one student asked. “What will we do if a shooter comes in your room?”

The teacher knew that she would have to tell the students to leave her behind in case they needed to escape quickly

“My stomach sank. I launched into my pre-planned speech about our plan of action. Then, I knew I had to say the harder part,” she wrote.

“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,” Schimmoeller continued. “Your safety is my number one priority.”

But as her instructions sank in, a student slowly raised her hand.

“Mrs. Schimmoeller, we already talked about it. If anything happens, we are going to carry you.”

This is the moment the teacher couldn’t hold back her tears and inspired her to share it with the world!

“I lost it. With tears in my eyes as I type this, I want my friends and family to know that I understand that it is hard to find the good in the world, especially after a tragedy like the one that we have watched unfold, but there is good. True goodness,” she wrote. “It was found in the hearts of my students today.”
