Faculty & Staff Wellness

  • Findings show that 46% of educators, as well as school staff, are highly stressed
  • 58% say mental health is not good
  • They also don't appear to get much sleep: 78% manage on average five hours a night
  • When teachers are highly stressed it compromises their health, sleep, quality of life, & teaching performance
  • Students with high stressed teachers show lower levels of both social adjustment & academic performance
