The Happiest Teacher
Updated: Feb 22, 2019
An International Life, and a smile, no matter what
Welcome to the first blog post! Aren't you lucky? Yep! You've found it, the diary of an un-angry teacher. We are few and far between, but I hope that if I do my job well here, you can join our ranks, or just get a break from the negativity that often comes along with this job.
My Promise: To stay positive about my kids, my school, and my career. To appreciate the beauty that comes with making the world a little better each day by helping kids. To be a place for people to go when they need a breath of positive sanity in our hectic world.
I have to confess, though, I haven't always been the Happiest Teacher. I've taught at 6 schools in 5 countries, and they have been a grab bag of weird, frustrating, and joyful. I've tried to smile through it all, to focus on the benefits of each situation, and avoid the all-too-common staff room sessions of moaning, with varying levels of success.
