This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 1,10
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 10: Health and Well-Being

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. identify individual, environmental, organizational, and social factors related to negative teacher outcomes, including stress, burnout, and attrition.
  2. understand how a comprehensive model of teacher well-being can be used to implement evidence-based screening and intervention strategies.
  3. understand the importance of using evidence-based screening to inform the adoption of appropriate intervention strategies for teachers experiencing stress and burnout.


Chronic teacher stress has been shown to be associated with elevated rates of attrition, physical and psychological health challenges, poor job performance, and negative student outcomes. How can school-based professionals support teachers experiencing stress and burnout? This presentation will synthesize the findings of previous literature on predictors of negative teacher outcomes to create a comprehensive model of teacher well-being. The proposed model will serve as a foundation for providing evidence-based recommendations for screening and intervention.
