Asthma
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Shannon's classmates were staring at her. She was in the middle of a physical education class when "it" started to happen. She started to cough and wheeze. Her chest tightened. She felt out of breath. She froze. She needed help. The nurse was called into the gym.
 
2     After Shannon took her medicine, she felt better. However, she had just suffered from an asthma attack in front of her friends. They had questions. The attack had scared them.
 
3     The next day Shannon spoke with her teacher. She wanted to explain to the class what had happened. Her teacher thought this was an excellent idea and even invited Mrs. Riley, the school nurse, to help.
