How Do You Deal with the Death of a Student?

A young man in our district took his own life. He was not one of my students, I don’t believe that I had ever met him but I still find myself upset and depressed. I’m told that he had good and loving parents who are devastated. Several of my kids stayed in town today so they could walk over to the funeral home.

It was only weeks ago that we mourned the death of another student after a senseless accident. I’ve lost two of “my” students in past years. I’m certain we will lose more kids before I retire and I’m also certain that it will never get easier.
