What do you wish teachers knew about your chronic illness?
CALLING ALL CHRONICALLY ILL STUDENTS AND THEIR FAMILIES!
I was a high school English teacher before a severe lupus (a chronic autoimmune disease) flare took me down. Now I help students and their teachers understand each other and find useful strategies in the classroom.
If you are (or have) a student who deals with chronic illness, I want to hear from you!
- When I go and speak with teachers about this topic, what do you want me to tell them?
- What do you wish teachers knew about you, your illness, and your day-to-day life?

This is not a place for teacher bashing. After all, I AM a teacher one, so play nice. Trust me as both a teacher and a fellow CI fighter, (most) teachers really want to know so they can help you.
