After extensive observation of hundreds of teachers in the past decade, the issue of teacher mental health became an obvious topic that needs professional attention.
I wrote an introductory paper on mental health factors and remedial strategies because it impacts school functioning and ultimately student achievement.
All educators must be informed of this problem to maximize teachers’ welfare and reduce the staggering turnover rate across the USA. Inexperienced teachers must have assess to support and services to increase their survival beyond three – four years, the national average!!!!
During my consultation / coaching of teachers, I concentrate on offering a blend of technical advise while nurturing their psychological / emotional requirements, an absolute mandate now.
