"I have big blood sugar swings like this very quickly..I can go from 140 to 80 in about 30 minutes time, I asked my doctor about it and he told me to eat more complex carbs and protein but that's all I eat to begin with. Guess it's just a…"
"Here is a picture of my medic alert symbol. I do think it is US specific. I thought about adding Type Two around it, but I didn't want to go overboard. Medics in the US are now being trained to recognize the symbol in tattoo form."

Hey Chris....how's it going? In reply to your question, I teach at a Montessori school, and the methodology revolves around a grouping of 3 grades in one classroom. I'm in "Upper Elementary", so that's grades 4, 5 and 6. There are 21 children in our classroom (never exceeds 23)....and have 2 teachers per classroom. The 3 grade levels per classroom allows for not only growth within a sence of continuum and ease, but also mentorship within the student population. My sister who resides in Montreal also teaches special needs children. By the by...have you ever had a low while teaching?
