Mental Health

Feelings of restlessness, fatigue or being disengaged could all be signs letting you know that these may be related to trauma, secondary traumatic stress and or compassion fatigue.  Educators are identified as care and support individuals and focus on ensuring those things for others (colleagues, students, families, etc.), but without the proper prioritization of self, those stress levels can become overwhelming and won’t show signs of relief.  Your mental health isn’t only important to you, but it is necessary.  “Teacher wellness is linked to stability in schools and student achievement.”
