After yesterday, this is my thought: I need to check with my students mentally first, the lesson can wait or be done tomorrow. Oxford High School is 21 miles from my school.

Every day should begin with some type of check and connect. It’s a completely different world now from when we went to school. It all starts with mental health because if you listen closely you can hear some students ticking. We always get our work completed anyway and the students look forward to just unscripted talking and people actually listening to them. Most of the time it’s more valuable than the lesson.

I think gun control is needed. But I also think that there is such a strong pattern with these shootings that it seems to be a pathology. There needs to be better mental health awareness/access for teens. More counselors with psychology background in schools. There needs to be more of an emphasis on equity, empathy, and SEL at the secondary level. Also social media platform providers need to do better in calling out violent posts.

So true!

Yes acknowledge the pain and trauma instead of acting like it never happened. Maybe discuss what they might do in a similar situation so that they feel like they could have a little control. Good for you for thinking of that I don’t think I would’ve being that you’re in a different school but of course it will affect them.

Absolutely check in with the kids and let them express their views. Nothing wrong with that. But I’m wondering if kids feel anything about these tragedies anymore. So many seem numb to the violence. Let us know what the kids say. I’m interested to hear.

Oxford is a neighboring town to me. We had a staff meeting yesterday morning before school. We were told not to talk about it in our classes because some parents had already called the office to say that they were sheltering their child from the situation and they didn’t want them hearing anything about it in school. If a student brought up the incident we were to send them to the counseling office to talk. The shooter (15 year old boy) had been in the office that morning with his parents because of a discipline problem the day before. No one said anything to teachers or security about that meeting. Communication is key. I guess I don’t understand why a parent wouldn’t want to equip their child with knowledge of what happened and what to do if they hear something that doesn’t pass the smell test. It’s ok to say something to a teacher or admin. If they don’t know this, comments/insinuations will be ignored and someone could get hurt or killed.

We are also a neighboring community, my school is 21 miles away, & we were encouraged to talk to the students, we were literally given talking points… if we felt comfortable doing it. I thought it helped, although one kid in each class had no idea what had happened.

This is going to sound nuts. But, based on the close, here is the tip. LESSON: Check out where we closed on Friday and where we closed today. Same spot. Tip: Markets don't like to create a significant low or high on a Friday afternoons or Mondays. Very often they will trade their previous setup on Tuesday . . . Meaning, this sustained bullish trend can take us up to 3111.25 on a HWB Short or 3139.50 61.8% without blinking an eye. It's like the dip into lows never existed.
