NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) – Noblesville West Middle School teacher Jason Seaman became a hero to a lot of people when he stopped a school shooter back at the end of May.
Now a boy in Georgia says he wants to meet the seventh grade science teacher after he was chosen to read a poem about Seaman's actions.
'Safe Schools Across America' shared a video of Jaden Dunn reading that poem with us.
"The students screamed, they hid and prayed," Jaden recited. "The shooter was surprised. As the teacher, now responder, had flashed anger in his eyes. His first thought was not in my class, as the teacher threw the ball. He ran to tackle the shooter and to the ground they both did fall. It was over all too fast. My hero took 3 bullets. He stood between us and the shooter. So we can continue life to it's fullest."
Jaden's parents reached out to us and said their son developed such a connection to the poem that he decided to research more about what happened in Noblesville.
He hopes he gets the chance to thank Mr. Seaman for risking his life that day.
Jaden also says if this poem encourages him and other teachers then it was worth learning over summer break!
