"We are making a difference and we are making an important difference. There isn't a single day that goes by that, as I arrive on the campus in the morning,  I don't feel the andrenaline....Every day there is an andrenaline rush as I get closer to the campus and get started on the day."

"I feel strongly that parents are counting on me to hold it together and be strong for the community and to be a good resource for the community, to be sad with the community, mourn with the community. But in the end, they're sending em their kids and I need to be ready for whatever will come ourway."

September 11th ...Every kid in our district...was escorted home that day to ensure  that there was a parent in that house. We had parents who didn't make it back from the city, but we made sure that every single kid went home with an adult to ensure that there was somebody to hand the student off to or bring them back and we continued to support kids until we were in touch with parents or relatives."
