Principal killed in shooting posted of lifelong learning awaiting ‘Kinders’
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.
Earlier in the week, Ms. Hochsprung posted a picture of the school's fourth grade class practicing for a winter concert.
"A talented group," she posted.
While many of Ms. Hochsprung's messages dealt with the routine business of running an elementary school, one of the first posts from her account welcomed the school's newest students back in August.
"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.
