    Plus, I started the health education program at my charter school. I love teaching health. Love it. And the kids. I love the kids.
    Me too! I develop and teach the Health curriculum at my K-6 school as well and have been surprised how much I love that portion of my job! It makes my days crazy sometimes but I look forward to it every day!

    Why I am not a teacher: my first response was the kids could act like animals.
    Nah this is special-they act like animals everyday!

    Teachers have to put up with a lot of BS from renewing credentials/certifications, dealing with parents who have "perfect kids" (and that behavior lasts through college now), being able to punish kids who are rotten without hurting their precious feelings, etc. That's NO excuse, but maybe they're just a bit envious that, while your job has problems, you don't have to deal with all that nonsense.

    Let me reiterate, it's NO excuse, but I have teacher friends and if I had to put up with half the BS they do I'd lose my **** in a second (just the parents alone would drive me up a wall).

    Honestly we DO put up with all of that stuff Every.Single.Day. We know how frustrating, tedious, heartbreaking and annoying it can be! I deal with every parent in this building and how special their little snowflake is all the time.

    Next time I get called for a headache after a very vigorous Recess in the cold with normal VS I will be much more confident saying my kid needs to suck it up and leave the nurse alone lol
    I tell a lot of my FF students and their parents that I think they may just need some practice with sticking it out because many kids are not born with the suck it up gene. They always laugh but I also them know I can't not call them if little Jimmy has been to see me 4 times today for various ailments but that I don't think they are sick and need to leave school. I LOVE when parents back me up and tell the kid to go back to class if they're not really sick!

    We have the 24 hour rule written into our school policy but my nursing judgement trumps that rule. I assess the kids individually and instruct the parents accordingly. If I tell them the student can't attend school tomorrow and the kids shows up I call the parent to come pick them up. I am the "perfect attendance" grim reaper.
    This is me too! In general the hard and fast rule here is 24 hours but I do make exceptions. Depending on the circumstances I may let parents know that if their child does not throw up the rest of that day into the morning and eats dinner and breakfast without vomiting that they can return the next day. If I send someone home for vomiting I remind their parent of the 24 hr rule when they pick up and I do not hesitate to call first thing in the am for kids who have come back within those 24 hours if I think it's warranted. We don't do perfect attendance awards in our school because I fought to get rid of them. I get very frustrated with parents sending kids to school sick and then hearing them whine when someone else does it.

    When I reach that point in the day (sometimes it's 30 seconds after I enter the building) that I want to strangle a parent, a student, a teacher or an administrator you guys are the ones I need for sanity, comic relief and just a sense of calm again. I would never be able to do this job without you!

    This should be included in every talk: Respect your body. No naked selfies.
    This! If I could just get teenagers to understand this!
