First Grade Teacher Saves 15 Students

- Kaitlin Roig Saved all 15 students of her first grade class.

- Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting tragedy

- Roig put her students into a bathroom connected to her room.

- She then barricaded the door with a bookshelf.

We think Kaitlin Roig is a hero because of her quick thinking that saved innocent lives that horrible day. Shooter Adam Lanza intrudes onto school property while children of various ages were still inside. The intercom comes on and warns the classes of danger in the school. Roig then takes her class into the adjacent bathroom and barricades the door as said above. She saved innocent lives that day while risking herself, and that shows so much about her.
