Two years ago at my school a teacher was walking to her car when a known troubled African American started running at her and yelling "they are going to kill me help, help!" Now this kid was known trouble and disrespectful to EVERY teacher and adult he came across each day. The teacher didnt hesitate and told him to jump into her car for safety. Before she could blink an Asian gang with baseball bats were bashing her entire car trying to get at him. She acted as a hero, and probably saved his life. She took her own life into her hands to protect a boy who who was mean and disrespectful to her numerous times in the past. This did not make the news, mayor Bloomberg or the NYC Schools Chancellor did not reference her heroism in any way or form both privately or publicly. Guess who reimbursed her for the damage on the car? No one from the school or the system! Not the mayor, schools chancellor or principal.
