Everyone in the education world knows that teacher burnout is a major problem, but most of the conversation is about how to change the external factors that cause it – heavy workloads, poor support, insufficient funding, etc. This course recognizes that today’s teachers can’t afford to wait around for those things to change. They need to take action with the tools they already have within reach, starting with their own minds.
González knows from experience that even when you feel oppressed by the people and systems around you, there is a way to take joy in the act of teaching and do meaningful work, despite the obstacles.
Burnout happens when you live in a constant state of stress and negative emotions, and there’s freedom in recognizing that all that stuff is happening in your own head. Even if there are legitimate external triggers for that negativity, you have power over your response to those situations.
This course will teach you a mindset that can transform your teaching days from something to grind through into something to look forward to.
