Teacher Well-Being

Teaching in the 21st century is rated as one of the most stressful careers across many different countries. Increasing workload, new initiatives, challenging behaviour and lack of resources are just some of the issues teachers face on a daily basis. If we don’t replenish and restore ourselves, we can quickly become depleted and emotionally exhausted. This has implications not only for ourselves, but also for our students, as teacher well-being is linked to student well-being and also to student outcomes. Fortunately, the field of Positive Psychology (the science of well-being) can provide teachers with a rich array of skills and strategies to keep ourselves replenished and to help us to develop the resilience we need, not only to survive, but to thrive in the classroom.
