He came out immediately to speak with our principal about air quality standards.
I’ve been teaching here at the same elementary school for several years now, and I guess I can say that I’ve had both ups and downs. I do like teaching and getting to help our students learn, but the education plan seriously does not prioritize the safety of its mentors or the staff. There are lots of elements to think about when thinking about the safety of a school. One element that is often overlooked is the health aspect. We are usually stuck in a room with more than twenty students, so even though we’re very much used to germs, it’s still imperative that our cooling system should be up to the highest standards. I heard a rumor from an older teacher here that our HVAC ducts hadn’t been cleaned in years. This sounded crazy. I knew that HVAC ducts should be cleaned pretty consistently. The ducts experience a lot of build up in them and it’s very easy for critters to climb in there and even die if there are pesticides in there. I decided to ask the office administration to see the cooling system service history. I saw that the last HVAC duct cleaning plus the inspection was more than two years prior. I immediately called up the Superintendent. He came out immediately to speak with our principal about air quality standards. They had the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C business come to the school building right then to begin cleaning after school was done. It took them about a week to finish the entire cleaning process. There was some gross stuff that came from the air vents. I’m considering leaving the education field because of all this!
