Description: Teacher burnout is an epidemic that hurts students, schools, and teachers. About half a million (15% of) U.S. teachers leave the profession every year, and more than 41% of teachers leave the profession within five years of starting. When writing her recent book on how to avoid and recover from teacher burnout, this session’s presenter conducted a mixed-methods study and identified (a) the most common and influential burnout triggers and (b) solutions to preventing burnout and promoting recovery. Participants in this session will learn research-based strategies for combatting teacher burnout.
