A Tribute to Elmer Elementary Teaching Staff and School Nurse: 

What a Teacher! Elmer Elementary School Nurse 

My teacher is a person, Putting on band Aides

Who guides us all. stopping a hurting feeling.

My teacher is a person, Holding on to ice packs.

Who teaches us all. Giving out change of clothes.

My teacher is a person, Tirelessly healing

Who hears me when I call. all day long.

My teacher is a person, Just to make sure, 

Who holds me when I fall. that nothing goes wrong.

My teacher is a person, Whom I trust in all. Our children are safer,

My teacher is a person, because of you.

Who, to me, is the greatest teacher of all! Thank you Mrs. Ewing . . . 

National Teacher’s Day May 9th For all that you do!

Nurse Appreciation Day May 10th
