Quotes about Teaching
Teachers have the amazing power of being able to inspire young minds! But with that power comes great responsibility – good results, progress in learning, and needing to keep them focused on the task at hand.
According to a 2019 study by the National Foundation for Educational Research, teachers have more job-related stress than other professionals. Although teachers’ working hours across the year were similar to those in other professions, working so intensively over fewer weeks of the year led to a poorer work-life balance and higher stress levels. As well as the hours spent teaching, educators devote their time to preparation and grading; and make an emotional investment in the success and wellbeing of their students.
