Since our nurse plays an important role in our school, I decided to interview her about her career and how kids can stay healthy. See what Ms. Shelley Clayton had to say.

Q: What or who influenced you to be a nurse?

A: When my son was born, that’s when I decided I wanted to be a nurse. I wanted to have the same schedule as my son.

Q: Who supported you while you worked toward your goal of becoming a nurse?

A: My whole family has always supported me. There was never a time they didn’t.

Q: When was a time that you had to make a difficult decision?

A: I think the hardest decision was when I had to decide if I wanted to work at a hospital or not.

Q: What is your favorite part about your job?

A: I love working with kids.

Q: How can students on campus stay healthy?

A: Students can kill lots of bacteria and germs just by washing their hands.
