Rule the School

What do you do about those cliques whose mission is to acquire supreme power over the school and who have mesmerized and hypnotized the principal?

Thinking about hiding out in my room for the rest of the year.

Huh, I think you've hit upon the answer! I ALWAYS try to hide out in my room as much as possible so i think that's the way to go.
What are they doing to try to rule everything? Is it something you can ignore?

You will be labeled as negative and unsocial if you hide out too much. Be yourself,maintain your principles and be very careful who you talk to because some people are expending effort into getting inside the clique and will chat about you to get inside the clique. Don't hide too much and be superficially social.

I agree with Anna, be friendly and positve towards everyone. Be the first to say hello, give compliments, etc. then go in your room and teach.

Litany of Humility

I am falling in love with the Litany of Humility. In this situation, which I have faced, I do say the litany of humility. It helps me not be so bothered by this.

Here's the litany:

Quote:
O Jesus, meek and humble of heart,

Hear me.

From the desire of being esteemed,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the desire of being loved,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the desire of being extolled,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the desire of being honored,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the desire of being praised,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the desire of being preferred to others,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the desire of being consulted,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the desire of being approved,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the fear of being humiliated,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the fear of being despised,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the fear of suffering rebukes,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the fear of being calumniated,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the fear of being forgotten,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the fear of being ridiculed,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the fear of being wronged,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

From the fear of being suspected,

Deliver me, O Jesus.

That others may be loved more than I,

Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be esteemed more than I,

Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That, in the opinion of the world, others may increase and I may decrease,

Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be chosen and I set aside,

Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be praised and I go unnoticed,

Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may be preferred to me in everything,

Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

That others may become holier than I, provided that I may become as holy as I should,

Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

Be nice to everyone, teach your kids and try to develop hobbies and friendships outside of school. I'm where you are....and it is hard some days.

Ignore them?

They are always there. Best idea is to ignore, keep your head down and do your job. Don't let them get to you.
