The teachers where I work are in a state of low morale, including myself. We have a new director. She told us that she wouldn't be doing the little gift items for our birthdays, etc. We are left without all the little extras that we were used to, including someone patting us on the back once in a while. We were also told that due to lower enrollment over the summer, we're only receiving 10 cent raises. Several of us are extremely dedicated and work hard to run a great program. What would you do? Do you think it would be out of line to voice how we feel? Would subtle hints be an idea, such as notes telling our director some of the extras we are doing? She is never there because she also runs another business. She signs our paychecks. WHat do you all think? We are depressed. Several of us have worked there for 17 to 20 years and are very dependable in comparison to the newer employees, so what will keep us going and dedicated to do a super job?
