I’ve been crying about this since i heard the terrible news. I started working as a substitute teacher at Powhatan 3 years ago, and became a full time teacher last year. Kurt was always so kind to me. Being in the school now is so strange, I’m so used to seeing him there that I’m always expecting him to be around the next corner.

I feel so awful for both he and his family. I feel awful that our school district didn’t shut down when every other one did, and that this happened to such a kind person. I hope his family finds comfort in these messages, knowing what their loved one meant to so many people.

Rest easy Kurt, I hope you find peace on the other side. We all miss you,
