Part of me says only talk about school related issues at school and leave personal/family issues outside of school but since I work at a private school and we pray, I'd like to bring up some health issues that my relatives are facing but I also don't want to start crying and get all emotional at school. I can easily cry when I talk about emotional things that really upset me and I don't want to be viewed as weak or anything like that since I was told that as a child. Today I find out if my mother in law's 2nd treatment for cancer is working or not. We'll get the call tonight since they live out of state. It's been a hard day waiting and I wanted to open up at school to my principal before I left school but I felt I would have started crying. I'm a new teacher and this is my first school so I'm trying to be careful of what I say and do.
