Overview

Stress: we all live with it. But when the welfare and education of young people is at stake, the levels can rise precipitously. Every year an average of 10% of working teachers leave the field for reasons other than retirement. The attrition rate is especially high among new teachers. Techniques for coping with the stress of teaching are needed badly. The Pressures of Teaching is a collection of first-hand stories by teachers about the challenges of dealing with the stress often found in America's classrooms. It is an indispensable antidote to the burnout that drives many talented teachers every year to leave the profession prematurely. In this wonderful collection, the advice of teachers who have gone through many stressful situations is a resource for anyone working in this demanding job. Whether dealing with stress caused by students, parents, administrators, or just classroom life, The Pressures of Teaching is here to help.
