One thing you might not know about teachers is that deep down, we fear for our lives.
I know teachers across my state keep their classroom locked for no other reason than someone with an assault rifle could come through the door at any moment. They honestly don’t do it but for that: Not gangs, or the threat of a principal walking in unannounced. They do it just to be safe. It’s like wearing a seatbelt. When I put it like that it sounds alarmist, and I don’t mean to cause a panic, but when we talk about the dearth of gun laws in this country, some alarum might be in order.Details
