Health Class Help!

I'm in Grade 5 and my female teacher left. And all the teachers are male. I am uncomfortable on the topics in health class. What will happen?

Nervous student

Hey Babe,

The major question is what are you really afraid of? Are you afraid that a male teacher wouldn't be able to teach the course to you correctly or are you afraid of the discomfort you will feel when there will be class discussions over certain topics?

If you are still scared over taking your future health class, maybe you should set up a meeting with the male teacher who is teaching this the course. Tell him that you feel nervous about hearing a male teacher talk about female things. When you confide in your teacher about your concerns, he will try to make the learning experience as comfortable as possible.

And don’t worry about it so much! Everyone takes health class and everyone experiences uncomfortable topics. It is something that needs to be discussed in school though. The more you know, the better able you will be to prepare yourself in the future. I hope this helps you!
