What is the weather like in your room today? Did someone in the hallway tell you about the awful experience they had today or gossip about the latest bad behavior by this student or that student? When someone unloads their negative experience on you does it make you feel better, or does it throw some clouds into the weather of your day? We are the barometer. If we are giving off “low pressure” a gloomy day is assured. On the other hand, if we choose to spread sunshine by talking about what a great day it is or by sharing a positive experience with our colleages and students, I will bet your day as well as your students’ day will be a little bit sunnier because of the difference in attitude! One of my goals for the remainder of the year is to put on a sunny disposition and to make the weather pattern of the building a little bit nicer for the effort!
