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.
