NEWTOWN - A first-grade teacher from Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown has started a nonprofit aimed at helping children connect with each other.
Kaitlin Roig-DeBellis, 29, started Classes4Classes with the goal of teaching children how to be caring, compassionate and empathetic to others. The program uses a website to engage and educate children.
Roig-DeBellis says she wants Classes4Classes to become a global movement to help students learn the importance of kindness.
She is currently on sabbatical and will resume teaching Sandy Hook students next year.
