    with a couple of co-workers who love to argue about absolutely everything. If you chose not to be negative, they nag and argue so that you will see matters from their "point of view". These negative, conflictive people do nothing but bring us down. Our jobs are hard enough as it is without all this drama. I have enough experience now that I just nod and smile, say "that's an interesting way of looking at it" and then do exactly as my own conscience dictates. Even though I'd like to be a team player as well, I am not going along with any nonsense to keep the peace--I simply won't waste my time arguing or hearing about it. Good for you who changed this negative environment. Our students need us to focus on was is truly important.:)
