Teacher Well-Being / Introduction

Introduction

Teacher identity, motivation and well-being are three closely interconnected elements. They characterize who teachers are and define their attitudes toward teaching. Understanding these elements can help to shape teacher education and support programs that are better matched to the needs of teachers. Meeting teachers‘ needs helps them to support the needs of students.
