Welcome to the Nurse's Office!
Welcome to the Canton Elementary School Nurse's Office! I am very excited for a great school year. I graduated nursing school from The University of Texas at Tyler with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in 2006. This is the start of my 9th year in school nursing! I love serving as a school nurse because it gives me the opportunity to be involved with children's health starting from a young age and teaching them how to grow into healthy adults. My favorite saying is "Students must be healthy to be educated and educated to be healthy"!
The National Association of School Nurses defines school nursing as:
A specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well-being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and, actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self-management, self-advocacy, and learning.
If your child has any health concerns, it is very important to keep me and the teacher updated. If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please feel free to call or email me. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and phone number is 903-567-6521.
I look forward to meeting you this school year!
