it is important for me as a teacher to know what my students' allergies are. For lab experiences, I will keep both latex and latex-free gloves in case a student is allergic to latex. Also, I will try to avoid any nuts such as peanut butter for lab experiments. I will inform parents of students' allergies too.

This article gives a wonderful view point about children's lives. As a teacher you have to remember what might affect a child that may not affect you. Reading this article really made me think about all the different allergies that can occur in the classroom.
