Most who knew Victoria Soto describe her as selfless. She died protecting her students from the gunman who went on a rampage inside Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday.

It's just the bravest thing that she can do," said Kelly Uberti, of Stratford, where Soto grew up. "That was a selfless act of love."

Soto was in her third year as a first-grade teacher and Sandy Hook. She graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University, and was currently attending Southern Connecticut State University for her Masters degree in special education, according to her school bio page.

Soto loved spending time with her siblings and was a fan of the New York Yankees, she wrote on her bio page.
