MSD Teachers Continue To Cope One Year After School Shooting

It's been a year since the Valentine's Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and many teachers continue to cope. The Broward Teachers Union says they try to make sure the teachers are not forgotten. Broward Teachers Union President, Anna Fusco, says some educators still have trauma from the attack on their campus that killed 17 and injured 17 others last Valentine's Day.

"Some have PTSD, whether it's for their own feelings or what they feel for their students because they still see their students struggle," said Fusco.

Last week the BTU served lunch to the MSD staff and teachers ahead of the tough anniversary.

"We fed them a nice lunch, they wanted Mexican, just to let them know we're thinking about you, we care about you. I could see a good amount of counselors and they still have the service dogs, which I think is quite nice," said Fusco.

The BTU is marking the anniversary by giving back to students. The Union is asking every school in the district to participate in a call for service by donating non-perishable food items for their mobile food pantry that serves students in need. They're in need of pasta, tuna, cereal and rice.
