With how digitally connected teachers and their students have become, educators may find themselves checking their phones or laptops many times throughout the day and even into the evening to ensure their students are receiving the attention they deserve. While this is wonderful for students, it can be detrimental to teachers and their personal time outside of the classroom. This isn’t to say teachers shouldn’t offer this level of care, but rather they should set boundaries as to when they’ll stop responding to these out-of-class communications. This is what allows teachers to truly find some time for themselves and work toward enhancing their mental and emotional health. Having peace of mind outside of the classroom is imperative when considering the ways that teachers will have to combat burnout and establish a healthier work-life balance. For more information on how teachers can do just that, check out the resource accompanying this post.
