    I had a student when I was teaching 8th that smelled like an old shoe! I had to take a big breath before I walked over to help him. He was over weight, and I think that sweat must have been a symptom of glandular problems. Anyway, at the middle school, our guidance counselor handled odor problems.

    My suggestion for you would be to purchase those shower wipes that are advertised. They are supposed to literally be a shower in a box. Advise your student to take one (or two) to the rest room and to wipe off under her arms, around her neck each morning. Since you have already had the conferences about the problem, the student should take no offense. If you feel odors may be originating from another place, perhaps those new wet toilet wipes would also be appropriate.

    Hope this advise helps.
