    I am “Adam Lanza’s Teacher.” When I first got back into teaching in 2000 after five years away I was quite literally stunned at all the behavioral and learning disailities that there were literally “overnight.” It was now acceptable for our society to create a nation of pill popping students that were given these pills by their parents and doctors. Parents allowing these kids on meds and h=behavioral issues languish in virtual worlds immersed in violence. Gee thanks mom and dad. As a teacher I can not begin to tell you how insensitive this is to do to the rest of us that have to try and create a positive safe learning environment for many other children.
    I began to see behaviors that were stunning and scary. Students that were medicated seemed to be souless. Their eyes held no glimmer. They often talked of death and violence. They fixated on violent games and gang activities. MAny threatened to kill the families. I might mention here that I worked on an alternative placement campus for students whom could not function on regular school campuses because of thier violent nature.
    Many of the parents would ask me for suggestions because these students could maintain thier behaviors and learn and respect me while they were with me. I would tell them it takes dedication, consistency, clear guidelines for what was expected and holding the kids accountable for thier choices.
    My own child referred to me as Satan. When he did I knew I was doing something right..
