Supporting Teacher Wellbeing | Bright Classroom Ideas
According to recent research, around 5% of teachers today are suffering long-lasting mental health problems — up from just 1% in the 1990s. This is mainly due to the fact that the role of teachers is developing to include more duties and responsibilities than ever before.
Despite the heavier job scope, society neglects to address teacher wellbeing and their emotional needs. The result is teacher burn-out and a lack of skilled teachers available.
