Teachers at every grade level can relate to the feelings of burnout. Those dealing with complex pre-teens in the middle school grade level are likely just as stressed as the teachers controlling classrooms full of young, screaming children at the grade school level. Wherever you may find yourself on the education professional spectrum, it’s likely that you’ve experienced some form of burnout. While some traditional methods of self-care might be effective in these instances, such as journaling out your thoughts and feelings as a way of expressing them, often times teachers need more. Which is why it can be so important to seek that help through mental health professionals. Self-care isn’t just about the individual hobbies or interests you practice in your free time, but also realizing that the best help may come from someone other than yourself. There’s no shame in this, as often times this help is what allows teachers to become better not just for themselves, but for their students as well.
