Resilient Teachers

What you need to know about burnout and the stress cycle

20-30% of teachers in America have moderately high to high levels of burnout (Hultell et al, 2013).

More than 44 percent of new teachers leave the profession within the first five years (Ingersoll et al 2018).

Teachers of Deaf and hard of hearing students have been found to leave the field at higher rates than general education teachers, resulting in a long-standing national shortage of educators for this population of students for decades (Kennon & Patterson, 2016).

These dire statistics are all pre-COVID.

If you work in education, you’re probably not surprised by them.

This workshop offers simple, effective practices to support your journey back from burnout.

Learning Goals:

  • Understand the difference between stressors and stress, and describe each in our lives
  • Define the three components of burnout and which one is most strongly linked to negative impacts on our health, relationships, and work
  • Describe what happens in the brain when stressed
  • Learn how to complete the stress cycle
  • Practice a framework for dealing with stressors
