This is a great post, Elena. What helps me is taking time for gratefulness. It's a way for me to bypass the negativity velcro you mention and help nurture the positive. There's a great quote by Melody Beattie which I believe is true:

"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."

My best year ever was last year, 29th yr teaching. I took a risk with implementing PBL, joining Twitter/ tweeting with PLN & co-moderating #CollabEd! I want to facilitate even more during my 30th! Oh yes...I also read "Teach Like a Pirate"by Dave Burgess. Great book edus! Definitely read this. You'll be re-energized! Have a great year & #tlap !!!

Thanks for the book

Thanks for the book recommendation. I am going to check that out. I think this is valuable information for adults and kids to understand. Have you read anything about the Mind Up curriculum? It also gives a way for students to understand what is happening in their mind and have more control of their reactions.
