It seems to me a lot of the stress we suffer comes from... to sweep over a huge generalisation... the unknown. And it's scary. I thought I'd start a thread to share things which unnerve you about your school - management, new policies, gossiping... I'll start: I'm scared I will lose my position because my reputation has been damaged by false accusations. I'm scared to have a personal life or share things I enjoy at work because I don't want to seem like I am not working hard enough, or I am not committed.
