I have had type 1 diabetes since 2001. I have years of experience working with children and teens who have diabetes and similar medical disabilities. I am a volunteer mentor for newly diagnosed patients. I also offer support to parents of newly diagnosed young children with diabetes.  I have created, hosted and monitored several support groups for both teens and young adults who have diabetes. I currently create and sell diabetes-themed artwork and designs that uplift and support the diabetic community. 
I am the lead director of a local youth group, and have been involved with the organization for 4 years. I meet weekly with my youth group to discuss, connect, and support them. I have also worked with children as young as 2 with medical, physical, and cognitive disabilities. 
This class is not a therapy session or to receive medical advice. It can be viewed as a social club. Although the students have a medical diagnosis, we will not be discussing management of the disease itself. There will be no medical advice given whatsoever. The teacher is a 20 year type 1 diabetic and T1D advocate, not a therapist or medical doctor. 
Pencil & paper occasionally (check schedule or announcements in classroom first)
Anything you want to show us! 
Examples: insulin pump, insulin pens, diabetic stuffed animal, medical bracelet, diabetic alert dog, stickers, t shirts, medical kit, continuous glucose monitor, favorite snacks, toys, clothes, accessories, books, crafts, artwork, gifts.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be usage of the word, "diabetes." Children should be able to understand this word as it relates to their condition. But it will not be discussed in a medical way. Students and Teacher may also share about their medication or therapy using words like, insulin pump, injection, insulin, CGM, continuous glucose monitor, blood sugar. 
Examples of usage of "diabetes": What type of diabetes do you have? When did the doctor/ your parent tell you that you were diabetic?

My name is Dana. Nice to meet you! I love to teach children about science. It's my passion! As an Animal Scientist, my hope is to foster a love and respect for the natural world in young children. When I overcame my fear of handling creepy crawly...
