Award-winning teacher reflects on layoff notice

Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens. -- Kahlil Gibran

Award-winning teacher, author and blogger Heather Wolpert-Gawron says she recently received a layoff notice in the mail despite having worked in the district for a decade and being a top teacher. In this blog, she shares a list of 10 commandments for herself and other teachers to follow after receiving pink slips. Wolpert-Gawron recommends not dwelling on the problem or placing blame, but rather getting energized to find another job where you are appreciated and never forgetting "those whose lives you've changed."
