KATY, TX – For one local teacher, the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary hits close to home.

Kristen Polakow is a science teacher at Katy ISD’s Cardiff Junior High.

Her college roommate, Victoria Soto, was a first grade teacher at Sandy Hook who lost her life while protecting her students.

To honor of Victoria Soto, Kristen’s collecting money this week to donate to an education fund and Soto’s family.

If you’re interested in helping, donations can be dropped off at the Cardiff Junior High front office.

Victoria Soto is being called a hero for her brave actions to help keep her children safe.
