woman kills teacher in front of studentsAnother school tragedy has taken place, but this time a teacher was targeted instead of her students. A 47-year-old woman stabbed and killed her child's kindergarten teacher with a knife in front of her 5- and 6-year-old students. The murder took place at the Edouard Herriot school in Albi, France on the last day of class. And now thanks to this mad woman, instead of starting their summers with fun memories of the past school year, these children have this horrific memory of their beloved teacher being killed in front of their eyes. How awful!

The 34-year-old teacher, Fabienne Terral-Calmès, was married with two kids of her own and was a "fantastic teacher," said Education Minister Benoit Hamon. Authorities still have no reason why someone would want to hurt her let alone traumatize her class in the process, but the mother had allegedly received psychiatric counseling in the past and thought the teacher called her daughter a thief.

The attacker was taken into custody and it's unclear whether her 5-year-old daughter, who'd only been in the class for a month and a half, was present when the killing occurred.

Every time there's a school shooting or incident that attacks the most vulnerable among us, children, it's an enraging feeling that takes over. In this case, they might have walked away physically unharmed, but that tragedy will stick with them forever. And what of the child of the attacker? She now has to be placed in the care of social services because her mother slipped through the cracks of proper mental health care. Now it's no longer the parents of children who worry about the safety of our schools, but also the staff members who have to play double duty as educators and protectors of our youth. When is the madness going to finally end?
