teachingTeaching is a VERY stressful experience. Whether you're teaching in a state school in an inner city or teaching at a private school in the suburbs, the stress of standing in front of a group of (often confrontational) children or adults while teaching needs a special kind of person to manage it.

The stress of teaching is really two-fold:

  • The physical stress of standing and teaching with expectant faces watching your every move is stressful enough. (Make sure you know your stuff!!)
  • The added stress comes from society's reaction to teaching and teachers place in the social hierarchy.

Teaching is recognized as being of vital importance in almost all countries in the world, yet the rewards for teaching are generally poor. This adds to the angst of daily teaching that many teachers feel. teaching is not attracting the numbers of graduates it used to. teaching as a course of study is being shunned more and more partly because of the lack of reward (and the perceived lack of status that goes with it) but mainly because of the stress.

Remember that:

  • Teaching in today's youth culture IS dangerous
  • Teaching IS hard work
  • Teaching IS time consuming and
  • Teaching IS undervalued BUT
  • Teaching IS ALSO one of the most rewarding careers in the world
  • Teaching IS ALSO stimulating and challenging
  • Teaching IS THE CAREER FOR MOTIVATED, CREATIVE, BRILLIANT PEOPLE

Think you're up to it? Of course you are. Once you've taken the decision that teaching IS for you, learning to manage the stress of the teaching job is important. The first time you stand in front of a hostile audience IS nerve wracking. Learning to manage your reaction to the teaching role needs some practice.
