"Teachers are responding to President Donald Trump’s suggestion that arming teachers would prevent more school shootings and are using the hashtag #ArmMeWith to demand better school supplies and mental health resources, not guns. "

If you are a teacher or were a teacher, what would you #ArmMeWith say?

Definitely more counseling (not just advising for classes)/social workers for mental health, more teachers (for smaller class sizes), and funding for more elective classes so students can explore their interests more

Arm me with early interventions.

Brains don’t go bad in high school...they go bad long before that.

I think part of the early interventions is having smaller class sizes so teachers can get to know their students more.  I read one teacher's response that his classes are up to 40 students....220 students a day.  Because there are so many, he doesn't feel like he really gets to know them, gets to work with them to find THEIR success, and also identify concerns. 

Quoting UpSheRises: Arm me with early interventions. Brains don’t go bad in high school...they go bad long before that.

I agree with smaller class sizes but I mean early like infants and toddlers. During brain development. Make better people.
