Any teacher will admit—kids are germy! I am an elementary school teacher and I’ve only been teaching a couple years. Like clockwork, I always catch whatever is going around the school every year. This year I’m determined not to catch anything. However, I always wash my hands and make sure to cover my mouth when sneezing or coughing, but sometimes that’s just not enough. I was wondering if there are some preventative vitamins or remedies for making sure to stave off any respiratory viruses this year? Also, I realize that there are a ton of different strains of infections, but does anyone know why kids always seem to get their own unique kind that really just knocks me on my butt? I feel like other teachers can sympathize.
