Teacher Wellness

Teaching Is One of the Most Stressful Professions... So What?

  • High levels of stress take a toll on our physical and mental health
  • Teachers who are stressed are actually less productive when they are at school
  • When we work too much and experience high levels of stress, we are not able to spend quality time with our friends and families, thus damaging our personal relationships
  • We are less joyful and energetic at school
  • When teachers are stressed out and unhappy, their students are more anxious and less engaged at school

So.... Let's Be Good Role Models for our Students and Take Care of Ourselves!
