Update from Persephone

Clip to ScrapBook #1

Hello Tribe,
As you all know because you helped me through it, I had an absolute Hellish time at work last year with parents viciously attacking me and shattering me to pieces. I spent the entire summer putting myself back together and what I've learned is: "Never let mere mortals define who you are." AND "Never let mere mortals attack your integrity. How dare they!"
Well, this year I'm at two schools with 36 classes per week. So busy and so happy. My "new" school has not had a real librarian for a long time. I'm a bit different, but I'm growing on them. I just did a fun STEM project with all my classes which garnered much enthusiasm from students and teachers. When I do bus duty, my students are calling to me and waving excitedly from the buses and many youngsters are professing "I LOVE Library!"
I am back, Baby!
Back in the Library. Back doing the fun lessons that I love.
Feeling exhilarated.
No parent or administrator is ever going to get away with making me feel like crap again. I will not let them.
Thank You, Dear Tribe for being so supportive and helping me get through it all and come out stronger on the other side. I appreciate you so much.

I am so very happy that the beginning of the school year is better for you. I know last year was tough for you. To be honest, I think the criticism that you mentioned last year was not vicious but fairly typical for parents and I was (and am) concerned that it was so devastating for you.
While I am glad to hear that you've taken the summer to recover and hope for the very best for you, I hope you have some long-lasting strategies to become more resilient when it inevitably happens that somebody says something again. No one makes everyone happy all of the time ever no matter how great they are. I hope that part of your self-care and recovery included time with a good therapist as you have so much on your plate.

Iím glad you feel rejuvenated. I hope that Regardless of whether you are getting praise or criticism, you recognize your worth. A colleague was really upset with me on Wednesday and it did put me in a bad mood but I noticed that it didnít destroy me like it would have previous years. I hope you reach that point too.

It is inevitable that we are going to be blamed for things that are not our fault. People tend to back off when you stand your ground and say with confidence why you made your decision even though they thought it was harsh or whatever. Does that make sense? I even had a parent shock me and apologize to me When she was in the building and was disrupting my teaching.
