This Is Why Teachers Are Heroes

With perhaps only moments to spare - who would you trust your life or that of a loved one - a lawmaker or or teacher? From Sandy Hook to Briarwood, teachers show us time and time again it isn't just a job. They lay down their lives to protect our children even before first-responders are on the scene.

The Siren salutes each and every one of our nation's teachers. Thank you.
