students, who are mostly low-income and live in a high- crime area, have experienced many traumas in their lives, say teachers, but are proving to be resilient. After the ordeal, Beuler made t r o p h i e s f o r t h e s t u d e n t s i n Smith's class and the aides with the words "Super Hero" on them. "It was dif ficult to go back," says Beuler. "But I felt I needed to show my students and myself that I wasn't afraid. We will con- tinue to heal. Since the tragedy, the entire North Park community has become closer. This event made us realize how much we care about each other. I believe that God put me there for a reason, and I feel good about what I did. I'm also thankful Darlene and I have each other to lean on when we need to." Despite an upswing in school shootings — and a mass shooting in San Bernardino two years ago — Beuler says she always felt extremely safe at her school. She is now much more cognizant of her sur- roundings and has a ren ewed appreciation for life. "One of the things I learned is that schools need to be proac- tive," she says. "Schools need to practice safety procedures on a regular basis. Communications and teamwork are key. Everyone here did a phenomenal job fol- lowing emergency procedures for evacuating. e North Park staff are awesome role models for our students. I'm proud to be part of this school." " It was difficult to go back. But I felt I needed to show my students and myself that I wasn't afraid." 20 Perspectives M E M B E R S P O T L I G H T FIND YOUR DREAM HOME AND SAVE Provident Credit Union's Mortgage Program 1.
