The Andie Summers Show

Weekdays 5:30AM-10AM

A central New Jersey teacher is an absolute hero for her quick thinking and agility. Valerie Tauriello, who is a teacher at Soehl Middle School in Linden, New Jersey, was on the sidewalk as students were arriving to school. One parent got out of his car to give something to his student, but forgot to put the car in park. As it started rolling onto the sidewalk toward a group of students, Tauriello jumped into action.

Valerie Tauriello is this week’s Andie Summers Show Good Samaritan.
