Presumably well trained and experienced.
If your average, run-of-the-mill, well-trained and experienced law enforcement officer panics and fails to do as trained, how will a teacher who had a few hours of target practice do?

Probably not so hot.

Since a certain element believes that the mere presence of a gun in the hands of a "good guy" is the answer here, I just wonder if they will have the common sense to understand that, while there may be lots of "good guys" with guns, a large portion of them will still either not be able to act at all or will act in ways that complicate and confuse the situation even more.

But as long as we don't focus on the real problem, it will never be solved, will it?
