Wow, has this ever been a sad week. I teach at a school that has a pretty high Haitian population and many of these children come from families that still have relatives living in Haiti. The earthquake there has really effected our school here.
I have three students in my class that still have family living in Haiti. My students don't really understand the magnitude of the devastation or what not hearing from relatives could mean.
Our guidance counselors were busy for most of the day with kids that were upset and worried about family members they hadn't heard from. We even have a couple of teachers that still had no word from their families living in Haiti at three this afternoon.
It's so sad and I know that the next couple of days will bring more sadness for many of these families.
