Teacher Vicki Leigh Soto is a true hero.
As gunfire erupted at Sandy Hook Elementary School, officials say she hid her first-grade students in a closet, saving their lives. “In doing so, she put herself between the kids and the gunman’s bullets,” a police officer told the Wall Street Journal.
Carlee and Jillian Soto honored Vicki’s heroism on Twitter as they grieved for their beautiful sister.
