    Diabetic Student
    By Deanie

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I had a diabetic student 3 years ago when I taught 4th grade. It was really no problem at all. He did need a snack prior to lunch. He opted to eat it with the nurse because he didn't want to eat in front of the other kids. He would also tell me if he wasn't feeling right, so I'd send him to the nurse to check his blood sugar.

    I'm not big on candy as a treat in the classroom, but every blue moon we'd have a treat. I found out his favorite treat was the sugarfree Jolly Ranchers, so I always kept a supply on hand for him.

    When we'd go on a field trip, I'd have to take special emergency items for him, and our nurse always made sure to tell me what to watch for. I never had a problem.:)
