[Thoughts on Teaching] Gossip?

I have a lot to say, but I’m having a small moral quandary. What is the line between gossip and sharing stories?  Who am I allowed to tell these things to, and how much am I allowed to say? There have been a few things in my district lately that have surprised me. Things people know about my kids, my school, my career, that I wouldn’t think they would know. But people talk. Am I doing the same thing here?

Honest guys–input.  Where is the line?

I am biased for sure because I think you are amazing and am glad you share your stories from the front lines. I don't believe what you share falls under the “gossip” definition (see above), but I suppose it is all relative.
