Teacher Well-Being

Introduction

In this section we will discuss different factors that create teacher motivation in contexts of crisis, post-crisis and state fragility. We will also consider the implications of these on student well-being. And we will draw on examples from Healing Classrooms findings, promising practice interventions and from the Healing Classrooms regional workshops in West and East Africa in September/October 2006.

By the end of this section, you will:

  • Have an in-depth understanding of teacher motivation issues in contexts of crisis, post-crisis and state fragility

  • Be able to apply these concepts and identify teacher motivation dynamics in your local context

  • Understand how teacher motivation impacts positively and negatively on student well-being

  • Identify actions that can be taken in your context to strengthen teacher motivation to support student well-being
