Should teachers really have to sacrifice their own mental and physical well-being for the sake of their classes? While it’s certainly noble to think that teachers would be willing to do so, the truth is the inability to manage their wellbeing effectively is what contributes to the burnout rate seen in the industry. That said, it’s very easy to understand losing sight of oneself throughout the process. Developing lesson plans, engaging students daily, and providing individualized care can require a certain level of commitment and care that many individuals would never be able to possess. While this makes it very clear just how important teachers are to the generations being raised today, they’re still mostly underfunded and insufficiently prepared in regard to resources necessary to keep their classrooms, and themselves, operating effectively. Combating the current level of burnout within the industry is imperative for the sake of these children and their teachers. In order to do so, self-care will be essential for the teachers dedicating their time to their classrooms. To learn more about the ways in which self-care can have a positive impact emotionally, mentally, and physically for teachers, read on to the resource featured amongst this post.
