Do you think happy teachers make happy pupils? If so, what stops happy teachers from being happy? Is it possible that the people managing them don't actually understand this simple A, B, C? I am really interested in this from an international teacher's perspective? Because within different cultures, there may be different approaches to this same problem. I am in the middle east and it really makes me wonder if the management have considered this formula? Because, it seems their predominant formula is the boss rules without any consultation [which is why I hate my Principal/Owner so much] and I wonder if other teachers are experiencing the same thing from a disreputable management in other countries? Principals that try and line their own 'coffins' with valuables before they 'die'?
