One of the high school teachers who saved students during the mass shooting at a Douglas High School is from metro Detroit. Ernie Rospierski is from the area and now teaches at the high school in Parkland, Fla. We're told Rospierski and his wife Andrea Kowalski-Rospierski, who also teaches at the district, are both from the area. His wife's LinkedIn profile shows her graduating from both Northern Michigan University and Wayne State University. Andrea's father tells us Ernie grew up in Roseville. The Miami Herald wrote about what Rospierski did during the shooting in an article titled, "This teacher thought it was a drill but then heard shooting. He kept students safe."
