Teacher Well-Being

Introduction

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

  • Be able to apply these concepts and identify teacher well-being issues in your local context

  • Understand the possible positive and negative implications of teacher well-being for student well-being
