This year has been a rocky year for me. I teach at two schools and the principal at the second school does not care for me or my teaching style. She has made this year very difficult and put my career in jeopardy. I worked very hard and overcame everything that she threw at me. I will be teaching at one school next year (not this one, thank goodness). The difficult principal has recently announced her retirement. Being that this is my first year in the district, I am not inclined to contribute to the staff gift nor attend her retirement party. Given that we have had such a difficult year, I feel even stronger about not contributing. What would you do?
