The day before she was killed in one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history, Newtown, Conn., Elementary School Principal Dawn Hochsprung posted a final Twitter message about some of the books that she and her staff had planned to look over during the day.
“Setting up for the Sandy Hook nonfiction book preview for staff … Common Core, here we come,” school principal Dawn Hochsrung posted.
“A talented group,” she posted.
“Welcoming our Kinders this morning … 74 new opportunities to inspire lifelong learning!”
On Friday, Ms. Hochsrung would be among those killed in the horrific attack that took the lives of more than two dozen people, mostly children, while multiple media outlets reported that the shooter had fatally shot his mother in a kindergarten classroom.
