Every school should have a Donte Samuel. For more than eight years, Mr. Samuel has created a warm and happy environment at Belmont Elementary in West Baltimore, where excited pupils greet him daily with bright eyes and wide smiles in the middle of their regimented school day. Mr. Samuel is not a teacher or an administrator; he's not a school nurse, social worker or custodian. To the children, he's "coach," and to the principal and teachers at Belmont Elementary, he's a godsend and the key to a better classroom climate for the 355 students and 24 teachers.

Students entering kindergarten and seventh grade in Maryland will have to add new shots to their lists of things to do before heading back to school this month. Vaccines required for all school-age children in Maryland include tetanus, diphtheria, polio, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, varicella (chickenpox), meningitis and pertussis (whooping cough). Under the new requirements, kindergarten pupils must get an additional dose of the chickenpox vaccine, which means kindergarten students will have a total of two chickenpox vaccines upon starting kindergarten.

Forgive Sandee Besser if she has an identity crisis.Her white uniform indicates she's a nurse, but on any given day at Glyndon Elementary School, she's also a teacher, cafeteria monitor, confidante, role model and "mama hen." These days, it's all part of being a school nurse in Baltimore County -- or elsewhere in Maryland.With many families short on time and health insurance, the school nurse often becomes a child's primary health care professional, making the first diagnosis on injuries and illnesses.

As the school nurse at a Baltimore County elementary school, I read Dan Rodricks recent column on sick days with some agreement and much outrage ("This looks a lot like playing hooky," Nov. 13). Mr. Rodricks seems have forgotten that many educators are women and that at least some of the 35 percent of teachers who took 10 or more sick days during the 2009-2010 school year may have been on maternity leave. There are also many instances of faculty having to have surgery that cannot be delayed, taking sick days to care for elderly relatives or children, and being sick themselves.

About 55 children visit Susan Brock in the health suite at Churchville Elementary School each day. Some of them come in daily to take their medications, while others have abrasions, fevers or sore throats. And some youngsters just come in to talk, or to give Brock a high-five or a hug. "School nurses have to be patient and compassionate," said Brock, 59, who has worked as a nurse for 39 years. "I have some frequent flyers that come in, and they just want to talk. They need attention and kindness."
