40. What Makes You Think You Are Unappreciated?
Honestly, just what makes you think you are unappreciated???!!!

Because your superintendent doesn't gush appreciation??

Is your measure of appreciation what your superintendent does??!!

I would bet that the people that really count -- your students -- do appreciate you!

And they will continue to appreciate you long after your superintendent forgets you.

Do not look to your administrator for appreciation.

Look to your students.

They appreciate what you do.

THAT should be more than enough. And their appreciation certainly beats chocolate or cards.
