Teachers: Finding Appreciation at Work

Author: Elena Aguilar

In her article, "Teachers: Finding Appreciation at Work”, Elena suggested five ways to increase feelings of gratitude and appreciation at work: (1) If you don’t feel appreciated, appreciate someone else, (2) If you don’t feel appreciated by your leader, tell him/her, (3) Appreciate your leader for something (4) Consider the range of people who are involved in your work life and, at the very least, mentally thank them, (5) Appreciate yourself.  Do any of these approaches foster positive experiences in your daily work life? This can certainly apply to employees outside of education.
