Food Allergies in the Classroom
An elementary teacherís tips on food-allergy safety.
Iím not a food-allergy expert but I play one in my classroom. Like most teachers, Iíve seen an increase in the number of students who have severe food allergies. I donít know why food-allergy rates are rising, but I do know that it means classrooms and schools are implementing new protocols to ensure the safety of their students. It also means that as an elementary school teacher, Iíve embraced the responsibility of following particular practices to make kidsóand their parentsófeel safe and ready to learn.
