POCOMOKE CITY, Md. -- A Maryland armor manufacture developed a handheld white board for teachers that also doubles as a bulletproof shield.

According to USA Today, the white board measures 18-by-20-inches and weighs 3.75 pounds, making it easy to use in the classroom as a teaching tool but large enough to cover most of the body if needed.

"As teachers are doing their daily lesson plans, it's in their hands. And if there's a crisis, it's in their hands," Tunis said. "Teachers are not first responders, but sometimes they're thrust into that role."

Tunis, CEO and chairman of Pocomoke City-based Hardwire donated 90 white boards, valued at $20,000, to Worcester Preparatory School, the Berlin school where he sends his children.,
