This really struck a chord with me – I am definitely a glass half full type of person. I know that there have been times when I’ve stayed out of the staffroom, or have avoided certain members of staff as their negativity has dragged me down. And I can identify my worst periods in teaching as when I’ve sunk into negative thinking and lost all hope about my abilities, or those of my pupils. It certainly did my teaching no good and made my life rather miserable too.
So, now I’ve been reminded, I’m going to do my best to be Optimist Prime and encourage others to think positively. Tell me off if I don’t!

This strikes a chord with me too – mega changes in school have meant changes in working practices for me and several colleagues. I have found this easier to deal with by keeping out of the staff room, as being in the staff room can really drag me down. I once read that there are two types of people – drains and radiators. I want to sit by the radiators – that’s why I love my PLN!
I love the drains and radiators analogy 🙂
