    As a school nurse, I get many opportunities to work with students living with diabetes, in my clinic, their classrooms, the gym, etc. I have a fifth grader newly diagnosed type 1 who has been working very hard at recognizing his own personal signs of highs or lows. Recently, he had a substitute teacher in his elementary class, who normally substituted in more urban middle schools. The boy with type 1 went to the sub very energetically and proclaimed to the sub and class, "I feel high! I feel really high!" You should have seen the look on that substitute's face!
