Though the efforts of teachers surrounding self-care are improving, shouldn’t the institutions that employ them also be just as involved? Despite how willing teachers are to contribute everything they have to their classrooms full of students, many feel as though the schools they work for don’t contribute nearly as much. While it’s true that this responsibility should be shared equally, many schools are unsure of how to approach the situation at all; leaving their educators scrambling to handle their feelings alone. In what ways could these schools be helping their educators though? Through increased pay, free counseling programs, mindfulness training, peer mentorship and connected support learning systems, these schools can ensure that the health of their educators is being taken seriously. While many institutions can start with the methods listed in this post, there is always more to contribute.
