MIAMI (AP) - Richard Cantlupe is bracing himself for his students' return to class.

The American history teacher at Westglades Middle School in Parkland, Fla., has been wrestling with how best to quell their fears when he sees them again Monday, just days after the Connecticut school shooting that left 20 children dead.

Cantlupe says the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., "was like our 9/11 for school teachers."

He and teachers and parents across the country are doing their best to make their children - and themselves - feel safe following Friday's tragedy.

School administrators have pledged to add police patrols, review security plans and make guidance counselors available.
