The past few years have been incredibly difficult for educators. So many components of teaching are challenging—switching between online and in-person learning, managing the ever-changing policies and safety measures, while still managing the responsibility of shaping the minds of the next generation.
A recent survey by Gallup Panel Workforce Study concluded that 44% of K-12 educators said that they always or very often experience symptoms of burnout. This number is higher than any other profession nationally.
Teachers are building the next generation and we appreciate you! So here are a few tips on how to rest and recover from burnout this summer.
