Dear current and future educators

Please do not breach your student’s privacy and loudly announce that they are “the one with epilepsy” in the middle of a lecture hall full of 199 other students. Also avoid stating that you are “sure that someone in a room full of 200 people will know what to do” if the student has a seizure without taking the time to ask about precautionary measures you yourself could take. Do not proceed to ask how often the student has seizures, once again loudly in the middle of the lecture hall, as well as assume that it is ok to announce a student’s affiliation with the Disability Resource Center. Such acts are highly offensive, inconsiderate, and unprofessional. 

Sincerely,

A fuming student
