My name is Shelly Kayser and I am a registered nurse. This is my 6th year at Glen Lake School. Prior to working at Glen Lake I worked in hospitals in California and Massachusetts in Med/Surg/Tele, Observation, and IMC/ICU. I am also a certified early childhood education teacher. I graduated from RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology) in Rochester, NY in 1991 with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing, and then the University of Maine at Augusta in 1998 with an Associate's Degree in Nursing. I became a registered nurse in 1998. In November of 2017, I graduated from Franklin Pierce University in Rindge, NH with a Master's degree in Nursing Education.
This month's health lesson is all about dental health.
We will be talking about brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist. We will also be reading a book called Sugarbug Doug by Dr. Ben Magleby. Ask your child
some questions to see what they learned.
I encourage you to help your child brush his/her teeth twice a day and
floss once a day, as well as visit a dentist regularly. It is very important to develop good dental
health habits at a young age. Thanks!

During the month of November my health lesson was all about germs. In Kindergarten we swabbed our teacher's hands and 2 objects in the classroom and grew the germs in an incubator in petri dishes. In afternoon preschool we watched a short "Crawford the Cat" video on hand washing and then practiced washing our hands. A handout came home with your student to practice the 5 easy steps to hand washing at home. See below for picture of the germs we grew in one of our classrooms!
This month at Glen Lake I will be teaching about eyes and ears in each Kindergarten classroom as well as afternoon preschool classroom.

I will also be conducting hearing screenings throughout the month of October and November, and you will be notified if your child has a hearing issue.
