Tomorrow, I will be going into the school where I teach to help with an epi-pen demonstration. They want me to share what has happened to my son since I have been on leave. I really want to be a part of something so important, but I am nervous about losing my composure and becoming emotional in front of colleagues. I think it is the pitying looks that really mean, "I'm glad I am not you" that I a m dreading.

What would you want to say to a group of teachers if you had the opportunity? Maybe that is where I should begin.

I did it! Very difficult for me but the teachers who came in with bored, what a pain kind of faces at the beginning left realizing that if it was their kid, they would want his/her teachers to take it seriously and know what to do. Thanks for the support and resources which I posted in the staff room. (there are at least 10 kids with epis at the school and no bulletin board of who they are in the office or staff room) think I struck a nerve. They want to develop a schooled anaphylaxis safety plan (kids don't take the epis at recess and they aren't even passed between supply or prep teachers) thanks for all the support, Susan. You are terrific.
