I remember during my second year teaching feeling so noble and committed for medicating and getting to school and teaching my band when I had a major cold/borderline flu, only to be confronted by the mother of one of my flute players pointing out that she'd have to take a day or more off work if her daughter caught my cold. And by the way, she had just changed jobs so her new insurance had not kicked in yet. She had a point, even if her daughter was much more likely to catch something from the boy she was hanging on during lunch...
