    I volunteered as a kindergarten aide for a semester here and it really opened my eyes to the importance of that adult in these children's eyes. Many of the kids came from impoverished settings without good role models. The teacher provided warmth and stability in addition to all the other things she had to do.

    Aren't those fun, not. Then the actual incidents we have in our communities that we need to use those skills for lock-down, lock out, and other emergencies. Make sure you also have the medication for everyone when you lock down or evacuate, and are prepared to provide opportunities for kids to deal with all these incidents. Sigh,
