Hope for overcoming teacher burnout, from a mindfulness expert.

Stress and burnout are eroding teachers’ motivation, performance, quality of classroom interactions, and relationships with students, as well as their commitment to the profession. Principals are leaving in droves, and teacher shortages are becoming the new normal. Our teachers are underappreciated and our schools underresourced. But, as the author of Mindfulness for Teachers and The Trauma-Sensitive Classroom points out, educators themselves have the power to alter this downward spiral.

Educational psychologist Tish Jennings presents a matrix of stress-causing factors that lead to burnout, and shows how teachers can tackle the sources of stress at each pressure point. From the development of social and emotional competencies—so important to teachers and students alike—to the achievement of systemic change through collective efficacy, she offers hope and practical remedies for overcoming a toxic trend in education.

About the Author:

Patricia A. (Tish) Jennings, a professor at the Curry School of Education at University of Virginia, lives in Charlottesville. Her first book, Mindfulness for Teachers, was featured on NPR's Morning Edition, and her second book, The Trauma-Sensitive Classroom, was selected as a " Favorite Book for Educators in 2018 " by UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center. Editor of Norton’s Social and Emotional Learning Solutions Series, she is one of the “Ten Mindfulness Researchers You Should Know,” according to Mindful magazine, and was recently awarded the Cathy Kerr Award for Courageous and Compassionate Science by the Mind & Life Institute, started by the 14th Dalai Lama in 1987.
