Overview

Teachers Today: A Guide to Surviving Creatively by Mary Zabolio McGrath, McGrath

Current cultural and economic conditions can present a range of challenges to teachers, particularly when faced with the complex problems and needs of some students. Within this context, teachers must be able to meet students' educational and emotional needs, while ensuring their own personal survival. This guide uses research findings on teacher stress and 'burnout' to provide support and encouragement to teachers. Suggestions offered include how to prioritize work, and how to recognize and tap administrative support.
