Exposing The 12 Stages of Teacher Burnout & Survival Season (Ep. 26)

Nov 15, 2022

Are you in a state of survival mode in teaching right now? What if I told you there is a research-based reason for that? So many of us feel that way and it's been coined "survival season" for a reason. Bringing a whole new meaning to "tis the reason for the season" am I right? 

But as I tell teachers I work with all the time, sometimes just knowing what stage of burnout you are currently in can be a transformative stage to recovery. In this episode, we are going to be discussing the phases of teacher attitude throughout the school year, the 12 stages of burnout, and why knowing what stage we are currently in is vital to breaking the cycle.

If you are ready to Break the Teacher Burnout Cycle, let me invite you to my FREE Break the Burnout Cycle Webinar and share with you the 6 SIMPLE steps to surviving and thriving before winter break. When you attend you will walk away with the official Break the Burnout Cycle Guide, a one hour PD credit you can provide to your district for continuing education credits, and an entry to an Amazon gift card giveaway. This event is completely FREE and I want to share with you the steps you can take so that you can get unstuck and reignite your passion again.
