The Handwork teacher

I am a mother to two beautiful girls and I teach Handwork and Fine Arts in our local waldorf charter school in Arizona.

sick in bed

yep, the one thing about working with kids is that you get sick more often. I am just recovering from 4 days with strep throat. This is my 3rd time with strep in 13 months. before that I had never had it. My body is getting stronger with each time I get it. But it sure knocks you out.

I have been shaking hands with about 80 kids per day....as they walk into the Handwork room I shake their hand and say good morning/ afternoon ...I am thinking about taking that out of my routine. As nice as it is, I forget to wash my hands after each class and I think I am just getting too many germs from 8 different grades... I mean a Handwork teacher is often working in very close contact with each child...germs!!!!!!!!!!

yep!

and pollution in phoenix ...mix it together and what do you get....strep throat, flu and a head cold.


I feel like I am sounding too harsh...but being sick will do that.
