Tools to prevent teacher burnout
The purpose of Teacher Wellbeing is to help teachers manage the daily stressors on the job and support quality teaching. We do this through sharing the latest research, resources and strategies in positive psychology, coaching psychology and more.
It is the vision of Teacher Wellbeing that teachers be supported as lead-learners. It is our vision that teachers have evidence based strategies to support their own wellbeing and therefore be better teachers for their students. This vision includes teachers acting as leaders with influence that inspire and empower people to flourish.
