It is thought Soto passed away trying to secure her learners. According to a relative, Jim Wiltsie, law enforcement, said close relatives members had been informed that Soto was attempting to get her class into a wardrobe when the gunman joined the room. "In our eyes, she is a idol," Wiltsie informed ABC Information.
"She was trying to secure, getting her kids into a wardrobe and secure them from damage. And by doing that put herself between the gunman and the kids and that is when she was disastrously shot and murdered."
Wiltsie said close relatives members had taken some comfort in knowing that Soto passed away while doing a job that she liked.
"Her lifestyle desire was to be a instructor and her intuition started in when she saw there was damage coming towards her learners," he informed ABC Information, adding: "She lost her lifestyle doing what she liked. She liked her kids. Her goal in lifestyle was to be a instructor to mold young thoughts."
Her desire to inform started at an early age, those close to the instructor said. As well as training first quality, Soto was also learning for a masters level in special education and learning at Southeast Burglary Condition School. She finished from Southeast Burglary Condition School with an primary education and learning and history level. "I have a interest for learning," she had written on her online instructor's page.
Soto listed her passions outside school as spending time with family members, along with her dog, a black Labrador named Roxie. Soto had been at the school for five years, first as an intern, then as a classroom teacher.
