Point of View
You are a parent of a child who has a serious peanut allergy. You are meeting with your child’s new teacher to explain this allergy and what specific needs your child has. Your goal for this meeting is to ensure your child’s comfort and safety in the classroom by communicating your expectations to the teacher.
For your journal entry, reflect on the following questions:
- How do you expect your child to be treated not only by his teacher, but by the rest of the school staff?
- How would you want the school staff to talk with the other children about your child’s specific needs and accommodations?
- In addition to the teacher, who else should be involved in ensuring the safety of your child?
