Sparks Middle School Tragedy
“Mr. Landsberry believed in us even when we didn't believe in ourselves.”
"He was tough, but he had a really soft heart, that's why he became a teacher."
“My hero, friend, motivator and now my guardian angel ❤ Mr. Landsberry.❤"
The students of math teacher and NEA member, Michael Landsberry have expressed their shock and grief after he was killed while protecting students from an armed gunman. The members of the Nevada State Education Association (NSEA), and the National Education Association (NEA), also mourn this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Mr. Landsberry and the families of those impacted by this tragedy.
