Staying Healthy 101
Is that a bump on your head??
As we all know most kids have that “nothing will happen to me” mentality and that sense of feeling invincible. Wouldn’t it be nice to just wrap our kids in a bubble so nothing bad will happen to them? YES, but realistically, it’s not an option.
Kids will be kids; bumps and bruises will happen.
However, when it comes to a hit or blow to the HEAD, we need to be more cautious and recognize the warning signs/symptoms of a possible CONCUSSION….
Change in level of consciousness, increased drowsiness, confusion, difficult to arouse
Pupils are slow to react or unequal
Blurred vision, sensitivity to light and/or noise
Loss of sensation to any extremity
Feeling nauseated or vomiting
Headache or “pressure” in the head
Unable to recall events prior to or after the hit
If you answer YES to just one of the above warning signs/symptoms, you should be seen right away by your primary care physician or the nearest Emergency Department.

Shari High – First Grade
This is my third year teaching here at IXL. My first year I taught second grade and I am excited to be teaching first grade again this year. I graduated with my Bachelors in Education from Southwestern College. I am currently attending Newman University to get my ESOL endorsement.
My husband, David and I have been married for 22 years and we live in Douglass. We have three children, Jayden she is in 10th grade, Jace is in 8th grade and Jill is in 6th grade. I stayed at home with my children until Jill began Kindergarten, this is when I began my journey to complete my degree in education. I volunteered, substitute taught, taught Sunday School at our church and was a Paraprofessional during my years in college (and continued to raise my family). I enjoy children of all ages and feel they need the nurturing as well as the curriculum, this is why I chose to become an educator.
During the summer we camp and take the boat on the lake for enjoyment. During the school year the kids are involved in sports, other school activities and church functions. I enjoy watching my kids from the sidelines!!
