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?
HTFU. contribute a nominal amount, go to the party and be gracious, my dear. You are the future, she is the past...and more importantly, you are better than her. Set the bar, don't lower it. ;0
