Community, Famous Authors Help Tampa Bay Teacher Whose Books Were Stolen When School Used As Irma Shelter

A Tampa Bay area teacher, whose school was used as a shelter during Hurricane Irma, came back to school to find that a bunch of her classroom books were missing. But there is a positive ending to this seemingly disheartening story.

According to ABC Action News, when Dunedin Highlands Middle School teacher Martha Hereford-Cothron made the discovery, she posted about it on Facebook. The result: there was a huge response, not only from parents and a local bookstore, but also from some famous authors. On top of that, the Pinellas County School district said they would step up to replace any books that went missing.
