Open ended post? I think you are saying the last people who should be cynical and unhappy this time of year are teachers. Teaching is not an unpleasant job.

This cracked me up! Some people do seem to be unhappy no matter what...Thanks for the laugh!

Hi Paul,

If I was saying that, it certainly wasn't on a conscious level. I was thinking more about my technicians!


Hi Libby,

And yes, why screw up the lives of the happy ones?

Spend more time with the kids and really listen to them -- that will brighten your mood!

Sensible advice. Thank you. I always feel better about things after getting out into the schools and away from my desk!
