Miss Burton's Class: The First Year: Tales of a Fifth Grade Teacher Turned Zombie Survivalist by Katherine Kuzma-Beck
In January 2012, Elizabeth Burton was a 5th grade teacher at Alcott Elementary School. When The Outbreak began, Liz found herself in the media center with most of her class. What followed for Liz is a story of survival as she tries to keep herself and her students safe in this terrifying new world. From the halls of Alcott Elementary to the shores of New Jersey, Liz blogs about her adventures, trials and mistakes using the high-powered military internet that somehow survived the first wave.
