How to handle stress as a teacher

Wellbeing is at the heart of what we do here at SupplyWell, so looking after mental health and managing stress levels is so important for our team and all the educators we work with.

Teacher Stress

Teaching can be an incredibly rewarding vocation. Seeing that lightbulb moment across your pupils face is such a high. Just as there’s no denying that seeing real progression and understanding in a cohort is magic. Sadly the other side of teaching can bring frustration, pressure and ultimately stress.

Teachers and educators face daily challenges and ongoing pressures that can build and at times, feel overwhelming.
