There is so much negativity in my school I can't stand it anymore! I'm not saying my school is perfect or that I don't have 100 things I'd like to complain about, because I do, but I feel like it's all that anyone does anymore, even people that are normally very positive. I just hate being around it all the time because it's starting to bring me down. The people I'm talking about are not the kind of people who are going to jump ship in the middle of the year, but everyone seems to have the idea that the grass would be greener somewhere else. Maybe it would, maybe it wouldn't, from reading on this board and talking to other teacher friends I know we could have it a lot worse. "We know we're going to be in this until at least June so could we try to be a little positive about ANYTHING?" is what I want to yell in their faces. But I'd probably just be looked at as crazy for not being completely miserable. I guess I'm just a pretty positive person who despite being stressed still does genuinely love my job (am I the only one?!?!) and I do look forward to going to work most days and I'm not going to sit and dwell on the parts of it that stink. Ugh, just had to get that off my chest. I know plenty of you are in similar situations!
