A Solution to Teacher Burnout
There is a chronic shortage of teachers across the country, with half a million teachers burning out with compassion fatigue and leaving the profession every year. That is 2,500 teachers quitting every school day, impacting the lives of over 50,000 students – every school day!
In an attempt to help improve teacher sustainability and student self-regulation, we have been conducting Dynamic Mindfulness trainings for thousands of educators throughout the US. The response has been overwhelmingly positive. At the end of a recent DMind training for school leaders in Los Angeles, one said, "This is the most beneficial, and the best Professional Development, that I have ever attended!" Another administrator said, "This training came at a time when I am acutely aware of the need for more self-care and calm in my life."
