Do You Leave School With a Positive Attitude?

I was involved in a conversation with a colleague at a MASSP Board of Directors meeting about retaining teachers and administrators. We discussed what causes people in both positions to leave the profession. One reason we often hear about is educators having too many bad days. These are normally due to one or two troublesome situations like a difficult student or parent. We forget about the hundreds of great interactions that occur within that "bad day." I compiled a list of things administrators can do so that when you leave work you leave with a positive attitude.
