    oh, but i put on my sweetest voice when i give that lecture. If i were in the South i think i'd say "Bless your heart" to punctuate it.

    I love my job. It is frustrating sometimes but never boring or slow at my slow. I am exhausted when I get home.

    But I will love my job even more as I enjoy my week over for February vacation next week. I never worked in the hospital so I have never experienced the pay "downgrade" so-to-speak. And I worked in education prior to becoming a nurse and this education job is a pretty significant bump in pay from my previous ones.

    The problem is, I love my littles!

    I'm in elementary...I think I'd pick high school if I couldn't get a job on a crab fishing boat in the Bering sea or as a semen extractor on a turkey farm. Middle school...too big to be little...too little to be be big. Ugh

    So scary for you! We have an active shooter plan and response in place. There is nothing specific for me. Once a shooter is announced (or heard) I have to hide in my room (or where ever I may be) just like everyone else. Lock my door, barricade, whatever I feel necessary. No one, me included is to come out until police or admin unlock your door. If I'm needed to help with triage after that, I would. More than likely I would be helping with student evac to our pick up centers.

    I picked mine because I'm a spitting image of Indian Jones...Well I kinda resemble Indiana Jones...OK, I don't look anything like Indiana Jones, but I, like, did enjoy the movies, like, a lot! I've been thinking of changing it to something else but can't come up with anything.

    One of the best threads since I've been here.

    Mine?
    Mine is my bitmoji.
    About a year ago a student took my bitmoji as her AV. I was furious. I had many AN members PM me and tell me about this IMPOSTER.
    I went to the mods and after some stuff and nonsense about copyrighting my bitmoji, they told the student to change it.
    The whole exchange left me a bit "off" AN for awhile.
    Not too long, though, 'cause I missed you all, soooo much!

    I hate these BMI's. I have a kinder that is 46 lbs and our system flagged him as obese. Ugh. We no longer send home the BMI's to parents, just how to calculate them because of how many got upset that we were "calling their child fat".

  • Feb 2

    I screen for it in grades 7 and 10 because I am required to do so by my state. I send a letter home that I doing so.

    But I do not send home what I call "fat letters." My state dropped that requirement, thankfully. BMI is a tool, but standalone it is very flawed. I do have some students in the obese category and even some paperwork on counseling and diet student has received from doctor. But there are other factors at play.

    I also am well aware of body imaging. I had a 7th grade student that does fall into the obese BMI category come and see me this week. She had a headache and I uncovered that it was due to her not eating in 24 hours. She went on a "liquid" diet to lose weight. I took her that was not good for her or her body and that she was beautiful , but that if she wanted to make some healthy choices together we could do that. Then we had a snack together. This kid will be on my radar for the year.

    Side Note: I, myself, fall into the "obese" category with the basic BMI formula, even though the size of clothing I wear makes me feel more overweight than obese (size 14). I work out regularly, try my best to eat well (but do love sweets) and have never been "skinny" in my life. I love walking when the weather is good. My health is excellent currently. BMI tells only a small part of a larger story.

    Meh, sometimes I stick to layman's even when I'm talking to a doctor/nurse parent because when it is their child, sometimes they can suddenly forget all their medical knowledge .
