Guess it wasn't really concealed. :-(

Kind of a waste....what if she had to use it? Another person who wanted to carry, but probably would have benefited from a class.

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
In some schools today, the staff needs to carry.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
If it was unloaded and she had no ammo available, maybe she just forgot she had it with her.
Of course, "unloaded" could mean nothing in the chamber, but ammo available.
Either way, it sounds like her teaching days may be over.

It is quite legal here to carry a gun on school grounds , and "inside" the schools if they are not posted with the AG's approved gunbuster sign. Federal law, exempts carrying at schools if you are licensed by the state and the state laws allow it.
IF, I remember correctly..... Texas does not prohibit carrying at schools and school grounds if they are not posted and the person has a CCL license. Someone familiar with Texas laws can post that.....
She may have only violated school policy, if the school has a policy against employees carrying or did not have a CC license. Some Texas schools... do NOT prohibit employees carrying.... there was quite a stir in the news when a couple of Texas school districts gave employees permission to carry, if they had a CCL.

It wasn't at a school, but here's what happened to my wife a few years ago:
She was flying out to visit her parents, and happened to be bringing them a gift that she had wrapped and stowed away in her carry-on. She went through security with her carry-on. A TSA guy got her bag out of the x-ray and told her he needed to check it further. She said, "no problem". He opened her bag, reached in and took the gift-wrapped package out and was looking at it. My wife, at that moment, said her stomach suddenly went down somewhere near her ankles. It immediately dawned on her that the gift she was carrying contained a full set of kitchen knives !!!!.......... "DUH"
The TSA called their supervisor to come out and he looked at the knives then looked at her, back to the knives then at her. The whole time she claims she was talking 90 miles an hour, but actually was probably babbling some unknown words that were incoherent.
The TSA guy asks her would she like to put these knives back in her car? Absolutely yes, she complies and runs out of the airport at some olympic sprinter speed. Gets back in and makes her flight okay.
A few days later I was checking our mail and noticed a letter to her from Homeland Security or something like that. Since part of her job duties involves hurricane shelters, I opened her mail for her to give her a head's-up over the phone on what's going on while she's away. However, I was surprised to find the letter was not about hurricane shelters, but to her from TSA, quoting regs. over some knife issue that was heretofore unknown to me. It was sort of a warning letter.
When I next talked to her on the phone I brought the letter up, and she admitted that she had intended to hide this event from me. Having a lot of remorse she kept saying, "I was so stupid, I'm so lucky, I was so stupid, I'm so lucky.................
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
Also be careful of Handgunlaw.us..... they are good guys but cannot follow all of the changes in laws across the country. I know the one's in our state were all changed and out of date on Handgunlaw.us and I advised them of the changes .... and they updated it quickly. We have several others that are or have been changed recently, where I am sure it is not up to date on there.
