|Chickenpox are not so noticeable on darker-skinned kids, I now realize.|
Anyone seen the movie Contagion yet? I just saw it, and this situation keeps bringing to mind.
How old were you when you got the Chickenpox? I think I was a baby. Most people I know got it really young. A few of my students say they've had the vaccine... but many have not had either the vaccine or the real infection. I don't know... I just find it strange. Maybe they're more sheltered than I was... but to have various third and fourth grade students who have yet to catch it seems odd.
Let me just say that the peace of having 4 students absent from an already not-too-big class is making for some calm days. We are getting extra great behavior reports from special teachers, too. I think I'll take some Chickenpox now and again...
