    Hi! Carol,

    I’ve read the headline of the article and I think it’s very interesting. It’s a good idea thinking about carrying out something that makes easier to teachers to manage with situations like this in case they take place.
    And you know, the more you know about something, the better.

    Thank you Carol for this post. I think we would need a lot of different guides. Honestly, I wouldn’t know what to do in a situation like that nor in many others and after all, we spend most of our work with people, so we are bound to have to face difficult situations at one point or another.
