Robb Elementary School Principal to Return to Work

Robb Elementary school principal Mandy Gutierrez has been given the green light to head back to school. This comes after she was placed on administrative leave on Monday during a Uvalde school board meeting. Gutierrez has faced criticism in recent weeks following the shooting that left 19 children and two teachers dead. During an interview after the shooting Gutierrez said she “followed the training that was provided with the best of my ability” and when asked whether she felt she should lose her job, she said that she would ‘second-guess’ herself for the rest of her life. Earlier this week, Gutierrez wrote a letter to the Texas House Investigative Committee and the district defending her actions and saying allegations against her were ‘unfair and inaccurate.’ She also said she followed her training during the shooting and wanted her job back.
