Addressing the emotional toll of teaching

Teaching is hard. The demands can feel insurmountable, and because of this, we see teachers leaving the classroom, and avoiding the profession all together, at alarmingly high rates. While we are waiting for structural changes from the political world, on the ground we can give teachers tools to fortify their internal worlds. By teaching them how to develop their own inner strength, they can cultivate a resilience to withstand the professional pressures.
