Welcome to the Health Office

Akosua Asante, Staff Writer

Here at METS Charter School, our new nurse is Nurse Joe. This may be his first year here, but he already has plans for all students. He is hoping to educate all students at METS Charter School about hygiene, germs, and the right way to wash their hands. He would like to visit every homeroom to educate and answer any questions students have. Nurse Joe also feels that he is breaking gender barriers because many students expect the nurse to be female. He says that there used to be more male nurses, but now they are only 9 percent of the profession;  he feels really good breaking barriers.
