I live in a small rural area where teachers from one school often know many teachers from other schools in the county. Today a teacher from a neighboring school was in an accident on her way to work, and one of her own children in the car was killed. What I want to know is, does anyone have any suggestions of what OUR school could do for her to show her that we care? We have all grieved deeply for her today, knowing that nothing we do is ultimately going to make anything better, but we all feel like we want to do SOMETHING to show that as fellow teachers, and fellow moms, we feel some of her pain and want to offer comfort. Any ideas? We are already collecting money, but the elementary teachers especially would like to do something a little more personal, but we don't know what. Has anyone dealt with something like this before? What do you do for someone like this?
