I hate my job

I hate my job because … it’s so depressing. I’m not alone. A lot of us hate it. But what can we do? We are who we are. We’ve been put on Earth to serve a purpose.

The community response shows mounting, not dissipating concern, and Orent says part of that is in how Boulder Valley School District has responded to the questions raised about whether the air quality is safe at Casey.
