5 Ways to Quit Taking it Personally

Jill Hare | Teaching

Don’t Read Into Things

Teachers communicate all day with students, co-workers and parents. This communication may take place through email, phone calls, or even paper notes.

The problem: Teachers are always thinking about things, sometimes too much. Don’t add extra words or tone that isn’t in correspondence.

The solution: Take things at face value. If you don’t understand the point someone is trying to make, ask for clarification. Don’t assume anything.
