AUTO START: ON | OFF

Kyle Schwartz teaches third grade at Doull Elementary in Denver.

Although she says her students are a pleasure to look after, the educator of three years adds that many of them come from underprivileged homes.

“Ninety-two percent of our students qualify for free and reduced lunch,” Schwartz tells ABC News. “As a new teacher, I struggled to understand the reality of my students’ lives and how to best support them. I just felt like there was something I didn’t know about my students.”

In a bid to build trust between her and her students, Schwartz thought up a lesson plan called “I Wish My Teacher Knew.”

For the activity, Schwartz’s third graders jot down a thought for their teacher, sharing something they’d like her to know about them.

“I let students determine if they would like to answer anonymously,” she says. “I have found that most students are not only willing to include their name, but also enjoy sharing with the class. Even when what my students are sharing is sensitive in nature, most students want their classmates to know.

“Some notes are heartbreaking like the first #iwishmyteacherknew tweet which read, ‘I wish my teacher knew I don’t have pencils at home to do my homework.’ I care deeply about each and every one of my students and I don’t want any of them to have to suffer the consequences of living in poverty, which is my main motivation for teaching.”

Blown away by her class’ honesty, Schwartz shared some of the notes on Twitter using the hashtag #IWishMyTeacherKnew, encouraging fellow teachers to employ the same lesson with their own students.

The tweets and photos of notes from other schools came pouring in from around the world.

“I think it caught on so fast because teachers are highly collaborative and freely share and explore resources,” Schwartz says. “In the end, all teachers want to support their students, and #iwishmyteacherknew is a simple and powerful way to do that.

“Building community in my classroom is a major goal of this lesson. After one student shared that she had no one to play with at recess, the rest of the class chimed in and said, ‘we got your back.’ The next day during recess, I noticed she was playing with a group of girls. Not only can I support my students, but my students can support each other.”

Schwartz says she also hopes her lesson can help her connect students and their families with the proper resources they need to live comfortably.

Iona Costello, 51, and her 14-year-old daughter Emily (pictured) have been missing for almost three weeks after last being seen on March 3

An eastern Long Island widow and her 14-year-old have been missing for almost three weeks after a trip to New York City to see a play.

Iona Costello, 51, and her daughter Emily, from Greenport, were going into the city when they were last seen on March 30 near their home in the the wealthy seaside village.

Their car was found in a parking garage on 42nd street in Manhattan,  but the pair, who often went into the city for theater and art museums, left no other trace of their whereabouts.

Relatives of the family, who own a horse farm on Long Island’s North Fork, reported them missing on Tuesday.

‘She said she was going to Manhattan for Easter,’ Iona’s mother Diana Malcolmson told Daily Mail Online.

The grandmother, who lives in nearby Shelter Island, New York, said police told her that surveillance footage from the parking garage showed Mrs Costello and Emily walking away from their car on March 30, holding suitcases and laughing.

She said that she spoke regularly with her daughter, but had not heard about any plans for extended vacations.

Iona Costello also has family in England, though they have not heard from her, according to Southold Local.

While trips into New York were fairly normal, Emily being out of school is not.

The ninth grader had been scheduled to return to Ross School in East Hampton from her Spring Break this past Tuesday.

Iona Costello's husband George, the co-owner of Costello Marine in Greenport, died from a heart attack in 2012

The mother had told workers at her farm that she would be ‘back on Tuesday’ but did not return on March 31st, April 7th or April 14th.

Workers at the horse farm say it is strange for Mrs Costello not to be in contact with them about raising the animals.

Southold police Chief of Police Martin Flatley told Daily Mail Online that his force do not expect any foul play.

He said that he does not currently have any hard evidence to point to the mother and daughter being in danger.

Relative Jane Costello said that calls to both Iona’s and Emily’s phones go straight to voicemail.

Police still say they do not expect any foul play in the case, though workers at the Costello's North Fork farm say that she would normally be in contact about the business's affairs

Mrs Costello was a well-known equestrian in eastern Long Island, according to the East Hampton Star.

Iona’s husband George, co-owner of construction company Costello Marine in Greenport, died at the age of 63 a heart attack in 2012.

The pair had married in 1999.

It is not believed that the Costellos owned any property in New York, according to Chief Flatley, though authorities are now looking at a wider circle of relatives that may know about their movements in the city.

A spokesperson for the NYPD said that city police are working in conjunction with Southold officers, but have not yet received any sightings of the mother and daughter.

Southold Police have asked anyone who sees Mrs Costello or her daughter to contact them at 631-765-2600.

PHOTO: A Delaware family of four became ill after staying at a resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands where they were allegedly exposed to pesticides.

An entire Delaware family fell seriously ill while on a Caribbean vacation, and a dangerous chemical allegedly used at their hotel may be to blame.

What happened:

In March, school administrator Steve Esmond, his wife Dr. Theresa Devine and their two teenage sons may have been exposed to the pesticide methyl bromide at the Sirenusa Resort on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, according to a report on ABC station WPVI-TV.

The day the family arrived at their second floor condo, the apartment below them was sprayed with methyl bromide to “deal with an indoor bug,” according to Judith Enck, Administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Region 2 Office, which covers the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The pesticide was applied during the day of March 19, Enck said, and by that night, the entire family “started having adverse health effects.” Both boys had seizures, according to Enck.

Paramedics responded and took the family to a hospital on neighboring island St. Thomas. The boys were then airlifted to a hospital in Philadelphia, Enck said, while the parents were airlifted to a hospital in Delaware.

According to the EPA, methyl bromide exposure can have short-term and long-term effects include severe lung injuries and neurological impairment.

The EPA banned methyl bromide for indoor residential use in 1984, Enck told ABC News today, but the product is still on the market for agricultural use.

The family:

Steve Esmond and his sons remain in very critical condition, Enck said today, adding that Devine is not in critical condition.

Steve Esmond is the head of the middle school at the Tatnall School in Wilmington, Delaware, according to the school’s website. Theresa Devine is a dentist in Broomall, Pennsylvania, according to the company website.

“They’re just one of those families that everyone loves to be around,” Oliver Campbell, a peer of one of the boys, told WPVI-TV. “It’s just horrible.”

“It’s terrifying,” another peer, Carl Marvin, said to WPVI-TV. “It’s really scary to think that this could happen to somebody that you know.”

The investigation:

The EPA has launched a “comprehensive investigation,” Enck said. Officials were sent to sample and monitor the apartments to see if any of the pesticide was left.

“We’re looking at what happened here, which we consider an illegal application of methyl bromide,” Enck said.

The EPA also issued a pesticide warning in the Caribbean and is examining if methyl bromide was used in other locations in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The Department of Justice is investigating Terminix, the company that applied the pesticide, Enck confirmed.

Terminix has halted all fumigation in the Virgin Islands as part of the ongoing investigation, said Peter Tosches, Terminix’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications.

“First and foremost, the family is in our thoughts and prayers,” Terminix said in a statement. “We’re cooperating with authorities in their investigation, and we’re conducting our own thorough investigation in the matter. We’re committed to performing all work we undertake in a way that is safe for our employees, customers and the public.”

Sea Glass Vacations, which acts as a rental agent for several rental units at Sirenusa, said in a statement, “Our deepest sympathies go out to the family and all of those impacted by this accident. Our thoughts and prayers hope for a full and speedy recovery.”

“We are also aware that authorities are actively investigating the possibility that the illnesses were due to chemicals used for pest control. The unit immediately below Villa Capri was recently treated for pests by Terminix, however, Villa Capri itself had not been so treated,” the statement from Sea Glass Vacations added. “Sea Glass Vacations does not treat the units it manages for pests but instead relies on licensed professionals for pest control services. We are committed to full cooperation with all the authorities currently investigating this matter.”

PHOTO: The Norfolk, Virginia police are continuing to search for 18-year-old Anjelica "AJ" Hadsell, who has been missing since March 2, 2015.

A new tip in the case of an 18-year-old college student who has been missing for a month led police to search a pond about 40 miles away from the coastal Virginia town of Norfolk, where she was last seen.

Anjelica “AJ” Hadsell was last seen on March 2, according to the Norfolk Police Department. On Friday, authorities searched a pond in Carrsville, Virginia after receiving a tip, according to ABC affiliate WVEC-TV.

Carrsville resident Steven Hines told WVEC-TV that he saw divers in the water but didn’t know what they were searching for.

Hines also said police showed him a photo of a white van, which he had seen drive through the area twice about a week and a half ago, WVEC-TV reports.

Police were continuing search efforts and haven’t ruled out any possibilities, Sam Shenouda of the Norfolk Police Department told ABC News today.

Hadsell, a freshman at Longwood University in Farmville, Virginia, was home for spring break when she disappeared from her family’s home in Norfolk.

Two days later, Norfolk police received a tip that Hadsell had been seen on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University, two hours away from where she was last seen by her family.

Investigators have said there is no evidence of foul play, but her family and friends say she wouldn’t disappear on purpose.

“This is not Anjelica,” her friend Andre Barr told ABC News. “We all know her, we know how she would act and this is not — this is out of character.”

Police describe Hadsell as standing 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds.

“Tiny hands and tiny feet … God has blessed us with an amazing gift!,” the new dad posted Tuesday on Facebook. “Isaiah Michael Fisher — born February 27.”

He also shared a picture showing his tiny son’s left hand, with a bit of his face also visible. Kiddo’s a Pisces, just like his mom.

The same picture and message went up on Underwood’s Twitter account, earning the 31-year-old new mom tens of thousands of “favorites” in a couple of hours.

The couple used social media — and their two pooches — to announce the singer’s pregnancy last Labor Day.

Authorities said Sunday night that Los Angeles police fatally shot a man on skid row during a struggle over an officer’s weapons.

Police officials offered a detailed account of what they say prompted the Sunday morning shooting, which was captured on video by a bystander.

Cmdr. Andrew Smith said officers assigned to the LAPD’s Central Division and Safer Cities Initiative — a task force focused on skid row — responded to the location about noon Sunday after receiving a 911 call reporting a possible robbery.

Patrisse Cullors, cofounder of Black Lives Matter, speaks to people gathered at Pershing Square on Sunday to protest LAPD’s fatal shooting of a homeless man.
Smith said the officers approached the man and made contact with him, at which point he “began fighting and physically resisting the officers.” The officers attempted to take him into custody and at one point, attempted to use a Taser that Smith said was “ineffective.”

The man continued to resist police, Smith said, and the man and some of the officers fell to the ground.

“At some point in there, a struggle over one of the officer’s weapons occurred,” Smith said. “At that point an officer-involved shooting happened.”

Two officers and a sergeant fired at the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, Smith said. It was unclear how many times the officers fired, although at least five shots can be heard on the video recording that captured the shooting.

No other gun was recovered at the scene, Smith said. It was unclear if the man had any other weapons among his possessions — investigators were still combing the scene late Sunday night.

The man has been tentatively identified, but Smith said it was unclear if he was homeless.

Two officers were treated and released for injuries sustained in the struggle, Smith said. The extent of those injuries was unclear.

The woman seen in the video recording picking up an officer’s baton was detained and is expected to be arrested, Smith said. She had not been booked as of 9 p.m. Sunday, and it was unclear what charges she would face, but Smith said the arrest would stem from her picking up the baton.

Smith said that, based on the video recording, it was unclear what the officers told the man before they fired. He said investigators would use audio enhancement software to determine what exactly was said and when.

“Of course we’re aware of the video,” he said. “Any video that shows someone losing their life in an altercation with police is going to be disturbing. It’s disturbing for police officers to watch.”

“It’s always tragic when there’s a loss of life in one of these situations,” Smith continued. “It’s not an incident taken lightly by any police officer. But we are committed to everyone involved and to the public to conduct a thorough and complete investigation.”

Smith said investigators were looking for any other video that captured the incident, including footage from the body cameras some of the officers may have been wearing. Officers assigned to the Safer Cities Initiative were part of the LAPD’s pilot program for the new technology and are equipped with the devices.

At least one officer involved in the incident was wearing a body camera, Smith said.

The dramatic confrontation was caught on video, which was later posted on Facebook (the video contains foul language). It shows a group of officers getting into a scuffle with a man standing on a sidewalk littered with tents and other debris.

During the struggle, one officer drops his nightstick, which is picked up by a woman on the street. Two officers handcuff the woman.

The man continues to scuffle with four of the officers, even after he’s wrestled to the ground. What appears to be one of the officers is heard saying “Drop the gun. Drop the gun.”

Then, at least one of the officers opens fire on the man, who remained on the ground with at least two officers near him.

Five gunshots are heard on the recording.

Police have not identified the dead man or said how many officers were involved, or how many shots were fired. The man was declared dead at a hospital shortly after the shooting, which occurred about noon, according to police spokesman Sgt. Barry Montgomery.

He said that at one point during the struggle a Taser had been deployed, but investigators did not know if it was used on the man who was subsequently shot.

Witnesses at the scene identified the victim by his street name, “Africa”, and gave conflicting accounts of what they saw.

Dennis Horne, 29, said Africa had been fighting with someone else in his tent when police arrived.

When Africa refused to comply with a police order to come out of the tent, officers used the Taser on him and dragged him out, Horne said. The officers tackled Africa to the ground, where he continued to fight, which led to the fatal shooting, according to Horne.

“It’s sad,” Horne said. “There’s no justification to take somebody’s life.”
Another witness, Lonnie Franklin, 53, said five to six officers pulled up in three to four cars as Africa was lying face down on the sidewalk. The officers approached with guns drawn yelling, ”Down, down,” according to Franklin.

When Africa got up and started fighting, the officers “went straight to lethal force,” Franklin said.

But Jose Gil, 38 , said he saw the man swinging at the police and then heard one of the officers say, “Gun, gun, he’s got my gun!” before police fired multiple shots.

Another witness, who asked not to be identified, said the man punched and kicked the officers and reached for one of their service weapons before the officers fired at least seven times.

An area resident, who identified himself as Booker T. Washington, said police had come by repeatedly to ask Africa to take down his tent. People are allowed to sleep on the streets from 9 p.m to 6 a.m., but they are supposed to remove their tents in the daytime under a court agreement.

“This man got shot over a tent,” Washington said.
Ina Murphy, who lives in an apartment nearby, said Africa had arrived in the area about four or five months ago. He told her he had recently been released after spending 10 years in a mental facility, Murphy said.

Police Commission President Steve Soboroff first saw the video of the shooting via social media. He was watching it again when reached by a Times reporter Sunday evening, trying to hear what exactly the officers had said to the man.

“My heart just started pounding just watching it,” Soboroff said. “I feel the adrenaline. These situations are just so horrific.”

Talk of funding and improved services to help get homeless people and veterans off the streets didn’t clear the tents and shelters along downtown L.A.’s skid row during the recent count of the county’s homeless population.
Soboroff said a key issue would be whether the man did in fact try to grab the officer’s gun, as some witnesses have told reporters. Otherwise, he said, it’s unclear what might have prompted the use of deadly force.

“To me, that would be the only explanation that something would happen that quickly,” Soboroff said. “It escalated. It escalated right in front of our eyes.”

He stressed that the LAPD, the independent inspector general and the district attorney’s office would all investigate the shooting “very, very carefully.”

“Of course I would encourage people not to rush to judgment. It’s not fair to anybody. It’s not fair to the family of the victim or the victim or the officers,” he said. “We’ll find out what happened.”

Montgomery said Sunday evening that investigators were in the process of interviewing “loads of people” who were in the area at the time of the shooting. He said there would potentially be more video recordings of the incident, noting that he could see two surveillance cameras mounted on buildings at the scene.

It was still unclear how many officers fired their weapons or what was said to the man before he was shot, Montgomery said.

Montgomery said the video of the events leading up to the shooting appears to back the initial report that a Taser was used. He said the “click-click-click” sound that accompanies the use of the device can be heard on the recording.

According to a Times data analysis, there have been 12 fatal officer-involved shootings in downtown Los Angeles since 2000. There were none in 2014 and one in 2015 before Sunday’s violence.

Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson and other activists on Sunday called for a special police commission meeting on the shooting.

About 9:30 p.m., dozens of people gathered at Pershing Square to protest the police shooting.

“The heavens are crying right now,” said General Jeff Page, known around skid row as the “mayor” of the poverty-stricken neighborhood, as rains poured on the crowd gathered around him. He went over the events of the day that led to the fatal shooting of Africa, whom Page called “one of our loved ones.”
In the crowd was Yannick Babou, 34, a street vendor who works in skid row. Babou said he came out to show his frustration and anger with law enforcement.

“I’m not anti-police. I think we need police in society,” Babou said. “But I think we need to hold police accountable when they do something wrong.”

Air Force Reserve Capt. Jamie Brunette was found dead on February 9 by Tampa police in the back of her locked Chrysler 200 sedan near her apartment

An Air Force Reserve captain whose family believe she was sexually assaulted in Afghanistan killed herself using her handgun.

Jamie Brunette, from Tampa, Florida, was found dead on February 9 by Tampa police in the back of her locked sedan near her apartment.

It appears the 30-year-old killed herself with her Smith & Wesson .380 handgun, which she purchased about six months earlier according to police, reports the Tampa Tribune.

The news shocked her family as Brunette, who left active duty after 11 years last June and joined the Air Force Reserve, had not shown any signs of being suicidal and was in the middle of opening her new fitness business.

‘She had so much going for her,’ says Jackie Leverich, 40, Brunette’s oldest sister.

‘She was so full of hope and wonderment and passion and excitement for life.’

To the outside world Brunette appeared happy –  the week before her death she was posting photos of her studio being built with the caption ‘Doing work today!’.

It was due to open in a few weeks time and Brunette was part owner/part instructor.

But Leverich says she believes something traumatic happened to her sister in Afghanistan, saying the family noticed a change in Brunette on her return at her sister’s wedding.

‘She seemed upbeat,’ says Leverich, ‘but she wasn’t really giving us a whole lot of detail about life and what was going on.’

Leverich says she suspects that her sister was sexually assaulted in Afghanistan – she does not have any proof, but believes there was an incident.

‘I suspect she was assaulted, and she didn’t feel comfortable reporting it for some reason and internalized the incident so she could finish her deployment, which she did with flying colors,’ says Leverich.

‘It’s not anything she told me, just from talking with all her friends this past week, and piecing those things together.

‘I am female active duty, 18 years in the Coast Guard. I am well aware of those issues, and that’s my gut feeling.’

The following year Brunette left active duty and opted for the Air Force Reserve.

Air Force Lt. Col Kurt Spranger, her business partner told the Tampa Tribune: ‘I do not know the detail, but unequivocally I can say, yes, something happened, something that should never happen to a human,’ says Spranger.

‘Something happened and it was why she wanted to get out. So she wouldn’t have to deploy again.’

He said Brunettte had split with her boyfriend two weeks before her death, but she did not give any signs of being outwardly unhappy and was professional at all times.

The Hillsborough County medical examiner’s initial report states that Brunette had a ‘long tobacco and alcohol abuse history’ and was suffering from depression and anxiety.

Her roommate said Brunette had confided in her that she was seeking treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder from the VA and had been depressed.

The VA, citing privacy issues, could not comment.

A memorial page set up online has been inundated with comments.

One user wrote: ‘She was a wonderful, bright, positive, professional, Contingency Contracting Officer and Airmen. She was so young and so full of life and I feel great sadness from the squadron that loved her very much.’

Another user wrote: ‘I recently met Jamie at Orange Theory in Largo. I was so impressed while talking to her – articulate, respectful, courteous and interesting. She was full of life and excited about getting her business up and running.’

MailOnline has contacted the US Air Force for a comment.
