Burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion caused by involvement in emotionally demanding situations. Early childhood educators face many stressors, including long hours, physical demands, and unpredictable situations. In today’s go-go-go, work-as-much-as-you-can, work-as-hard-as-you-can world, we are often accessible for work 24 hours a day because of technology. In this workshop, participants will identify the symptoms of teacher burnout, review relational pedagogy and why burnout gets in the way of relationships, and learn how to apply daily self-care practices.
Suitable for all early learning professionals and parents.
