I know that sometimes as teachers we feel like the "hype man" for our subject, our class, or our school. Enthusiasm is contagious. In the same way, negativity and stagnancy is also contagious. No matter where we work, there will always be those who spread negativity and frustration in the school. Don't give in! Keep up your stamina. Try new things and don't let anyone tell you it won't work. Be a risk taker and do what is best for students- not what is comfortable for the adults in the building. TURN DOWN FOR WHAT?
