    I know what you mean about a principal's comments totally ruining your attitude about school. I have often had very positive feelings about school, and then one rude comment by the principal and I don't even want to come back and face the kids. I don't have any advice for you, but I just wanted to let you know that I've been there. I currently blame the unsupportive principal for all my problems. Seriously ... it's not just that he's a good scapegoat. All his criticism has made me focus more on my ego than on the kids, which has, in turn, made me feel more negative about the other teachers. In discussing this situation with other teachers, I realize that I am not alone in this. I wish principals knew how much damage they were doing to the whole school environment when they step out of line like this.
