Me too . . . except I retired from school nursing last October.

Today, two teachers who go to my church hugged me and said they missed me.

I preferred the elementary school kids. But I had two high schools, two jr. highs, two elementary, 4 continuation, 4 special ed.

And I worked 3 days a week. I still get a bit nauseous when I drive by the D.O. where my "real" office was . . . :wacky:

(edited to add - yesterday in Safeway, a young woman stopped me and said "I remember you. You were the nurse when I had my first baby." and she went on to talk about how I made her get out of bed and walk so she could be discharged home sooner with her baby and she thanked me.)

Gotta travel to them all but I WAY prefer high school. Little kids give me the creeps with their snotty noses, whiny voices and pee pants.

As a former sub I've had a taste of all grades, especially Elementary. However, I like working with my 7th and 8th graders best!
