“I don’t think there’s ever a bad time to focus on teacher wellbeing,”
Experiencing overwhelm, personal neglect, conflict, unexpected challenges or isolation? Collectively known as “The Five Pitfalls” these factors impact the mental health, wellbeing and job satisfaction of hundreds of thousands of teachers.
Thanks to a partnership between their teachers’ union and the local school district, educators across several US primaries were able to find fresh solutions to “The Pitfalls” with the aid of wellbeing initiative: “Educators Thriving.”
Part of a broader effort to retain and recruit teachers, participants learned how strategies like being extra loud in the mornings to welcome students and staff, leaving their classroom doors open more often, and turning complaints into something more positive could help break cycles of isolation and overwhelm.
