Sandy Hook Teacher to Speak on Campus

In the wake of the tragic shooting in Newtown, Conn., that took the lives of 26 students and fellow teachers in 2012, Sandy Hook Elementary School teacher Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis ’05 (ED), ’06 MA has dedicated herself to teaching children to have an interest in the well-being of others.

In addition to her work in her own classroom, last year she founded Classes4Classes, a nonprofit organization focused on teaching kindness to students nationwide.

On March 5, she will give a public lecture in the Student Union Theatre at the Storrs campus at 7 p.m.
