How much do you all talk about work with your non-teacher friends and family? Do you think it's too much? I didn't think i did it too much, but a family member made a comment about it yesterday, which hurt my feelings. I've been thinking a lot about that comment and that maybe I need to cease all school related conversation with friends and familia. However, if I did that, my stress level would probably go through the roof because as an administrator, I don't really have a sounding board at work. Most of the things that bother me are about other teachers, so I can't discuss them with my coworkers. I can talk to the other admins some, but Im still getting to know them. Plus, even though they are all nice, I'm a lot younger, have much less experience, and they were all my boss for so long, that I sometimes still see them that way more so than as peers. In some ways it'd kind of be like if a kid from your class became a teacher overnight. Even though you'd now be equals, they'd probably still see you as a teacher and you'd see them as a student for awhile.
