There is much I could complain about. And, in fact, there is much I did complain about today. But I did it with a margarita and in the company of a few other teachers in the same boat. And what I am impressed with every single day is, no matter how awful the work and kids are, I am so lucky to be surrounded by a great group of people. There are a few naysayers and nitpickers and complainers, but overall the people I see every single day are awesome.
I think that makes all the difference in making this very difficult, frustrating experience bearable.
