Different Types of Stress

It is important that all teachers and students learn how to recognise their stress triggers and find the specific strategies that will help to alleviate their stress.

Teacher stress is often a debilitating result of too much paper work, too much change, not enough support and poor communication. Teachers stress causes high absenteeism, excessive turnover rates and general job dissatisfaction.

Do you actively work to include the various cultures of your students into your classroom & teaching practice? Do you have colleagues from other countries who may be feeling the effects of acculturative stress?

What strategies do you currently use to identify and manage your stress? How do you avoid taking on other people's stress (colleagues, families, student's, etc.)?
