CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - After the Parkland mass shooting, teacher Marissa Schimmoeller recently had to take on the task of discussing active shooter situations with her students at a Delphos, Ohio high school.

Schimmoeller, who is disabled and in a wheelchair, said because of her condition, she will physically not be able to protect her students. She emphasized to her students to do whatever they can to escape safely.

Today was really hard for me. Today was the first time I had to teach the day after a mass school shooting. I dreaded facing my students this morning, and as the first students walked in, I began to feel the anxiety pooling in my stomach. I was dreading one, specific question. Soon after class began, a freshman asked me the question I had been dreading since I had heard about the tragedy in Florida.

She shared the post hoping to showcase the compassion showed by students at Delphos Jefferson High School.
