Mrs. Teena Wade, LPN


I am married with two children, a daughter and a son. I have a wonderful grandson that attends Dutton Elementary School. I enjoy playing the piano, swimming, traveling, and camping in my spare time.  

This is my nineteenth year as a school nurse and fifteen of those years have been here at Dutton Elementary School.  Being a school nurse has always been a dream of mine. However, school nursing has gone way beyond bellyaches, bumps, bruises, and band-aids.  There are medications to be administered , preparing, writing, and monitoring care plans for all those students with health concerns.  There are lice, vision, hearing, scoliosis screenings, and a slew of other health concerns. I try to teach classes on health issues, if any spare time is left.  Some of those include hand washing, hygiene, and nutrition. My days are always full and adventurous!  It is a blessing to be able to look after your children everyday!
