Ignore the Trolls
Both online and in person, I see teachers enduring stress. Much of it comes from the media. I have stopped reading the comments on any news story about teaching. These people don't know me or my job. It is easier to criticize than to create solutions. Some people just seem to live for making others unhappy.
A colleague of mine once said she was done playing the blame game. She wouldn’t give it; she wouldn’t take it. When I read the vicious verbal attacks on teachers in the media, I want to stop playing it too.
