letters to each teacher is a good idea but are we guaranteed they will read them, i think it is important to speak to all teachers not just the head or principle, and even better if the student with cf is willing to be there to discuss questions from the teachers, this way you know that they understand the disease and if they have questions in the future they can approach the pwcf at a suitable time.
i think it is the lack of knowledge that makes them mean, i had a science teacher who insisted i smoked and progressed to get my school bag and locker searched for cigarettes because we were giving sputum samples to grow in the lab and when he saw my sample (nice shade of dark green) he panicked (not sure what he thought was going to grow maybe a beanstalk!!!!!
) a quiet word was had in his ear and needless to say i didn't have anymore run in with him or any other teacher. caroline
