Keep a baseball bat, glove and ball in the car.

That is actually a brilliant idea, and I'm gonna use it!

I would agree don't carry or if you can't go to work without carrying look for another job. I personally wouldn't let whether or not i could carry a firearm decide my career. I know there have being some shootings in schools but you are much more likely to be killed in a car accident on the way to school.

I think jd has the best. Aside from maybe checking on pepper spray, most anything else would be a bad idea (legally speaking)

Carry a cane or even an umbrella against a firearm not so good but against almost anything else you would have a chance with minimal practice.

Re knives -- I own a Spyderco Civilian, which was designed as a self-defense knife for nonexperts. That's an option too, but I think I'll hold out for the walking stick. Thanks for all the advice --
Have you thought about a cane? I've got a derby cane that I often carry to places that are restricted. The handle can best be described as multipurpose. It isn't weight bearing, but I just tell people I have a trick knee and use it for balance.

I actually collect walking sticks and have about 30. As I said, I plan to begin carrying one after I'm established and have a rep as a good teacher (which I am).

Not at all worried about attacks from the kids: intruders are another matter. You'd be surprised how often pervs sneak into the little girls' restroom in elementary and intermediate schools -- at least 6 times in schools where I've taught. None of those guys were armed, but if you're that crazy...

I've never heard of dogs that could sniff out ammo before. Explosives yes but 6 rounds of .380 in your LCR no way dogs are going sniff that out. Get a good lock box and lock it up.

I believe a dog certainly can sniff that out.
