Teaching “Well” – Finding Your Path During Challenging Times – Part 1

Teacher stress and well-being continue to be concerns, post-pandemic. Teachers consistently report that they are being asked to do more with less and that current work expectations are overwhelming and unsustainable. As society continues to become more complex, schools mirror this reality. Increasingly, teachers experience high levels of stress, lower job satisfaction and signs of burn out.

When teachers experience joy, creativity and empowerment related to their work, their efforts are rewarding, and job satisfaction improves. This two-part series aims to provide a variety of tools, strategies and resources, to support teacher well-being and self-efficacy, leading to a more rewarding and fulfilling career. –
