I'm student teaching at the school that 2 of my kids go to and I am surprised at the lack of basic hygiene. I use the hand sanitizer throughout the day, especially when one of my 1st graders ask me to open a snack that they've been trying to open with their mouth. I never notice teachers washing their hands before they eat, in the teacher's lunchroom. I always wash my hands...I wouldn't be able to eat, if I didn't. It'd be too gross. The kids never wash their hands before lunch or snack. And the desks are hardly ever washed, unless they do a messy project. I've asked about it, but they don't seem worried, at all.
