Getting burnt out easily
I have about one year left until I graduate and become a teacher. I have heard so many stories about how new teachers get so overwhelmed and burnt out so early on in the year or throughout their teaching careers. How can I make sure that this doesn't happen? How can I manage my personal and teacher life to ensure a balanced approach?

I think the burn out doesn't come from the academics, but instead personality conflicts and politics. Make sure when you are interviewing remember that it is your opportunity to ask the leadership questions as well. You want to be sure you work for a school who will back you up. Also, stay true to your classroom management style. You might need to do some research to find what will work and not work for you. And always remember why you became a teacher in the first place. It wasn't for the money, I guarantee, but rather for the better good of society and to help students develop into morally sound adults.

I love this solution. You are spot-on, remember when interviewing potential future schools that after all is said and done, you are the one who is interviewing the school. Have questions prepared and remember exactly what made you want to teach in the first place. Staying true to who you are is key within this whole system.

I would go into your first classroom with a strong teaching philosophy. You are becoming a teacher for a reason. Stay strong to those reasons and teach to the best of your abilities. There will be times when issues with policies, administration, parents, classroom management, and other drama comes about, but try your best to reflect on every situation and not react emotionally. Being well prepared for lessons, staying organized, having good time-management, and setting boundaries between work and home will help you.

Balance is key in life, just like learning. Balance is in every aspect of life. So teaching a class on self-care and your personal life to your professional life. I have learned in my years of education that yes you may burn out but you need to be reminded of your future self and what you can accomplish. I think a lot of teachers currently talk badly about the system and they themselves are burnt out, I can understand why especially now with Covid. I think is important to remind yourself of why you want to teach in the first place. What kept you coming back into education, once you remember that hold on to it for the rest of your life. Remember also that everyone's experience is not what yours will be. You create your world, not others.

Teachers can become burnt out quickly if they do not have solid management skills. Students can take advantage of you and make it so other students stop respecting you. You should get in the habit of having a way to deal with the stress of life. Making it a routine now will help you when you become a teacher. I am sure as a student in college you experience stresses how do you help yourself through those stresses?
