Using Song, Mexican Teacher Protects Kindergarteners From Shoot-Out

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

In the city of Monterrey in Northern Mexico, teacher Martha Rivera led her kindergarteners in song as a shootout took place in the streets outside the classroom. She videotaped the entire episode because she is on the school safety committee and felt the need to record it. Like other teachers, she had been trained for this type of event.
