Supporting Educators for Well-Being
Journal of Maine Education
Educators have been under attack from the public and policy makers. For a brief time at the end of the school year in 2020, teachers were lauded as heroes as families suddenly were tasked with “schooling” their children in remote learning from the pandemic. Since then, morale everywhere has lagged as people have dealt with the pandemic, inflation, gun violence, supply chain interruptions, and workforce shortages. Given the compensation and working conditions, the number of people willing to work in schools has declined nationwide, leading to what is labeled as the teacher shortage and teacher burnout (Edsall, 2022).
