How do you all deal with burn out? I’m struggling! It’s my 18th year and I’m not sure I’ll make it to 19! Anyone move on to another career? What and how did you get into it?

If you find the answer let me know! I’m feeling the same!


I was beginning to feel burned out at the end of my 17th year. I was not looking forward to a new year beginning with new faces. So when a different position became open in the school I jumped at the chance to apply. I got the new position and it has been a breath of fresh air. I now feel like I can make the next 12 years or so so of teaching, even if I have to go back to what I was doing before. A change, whether temporary or permanent is exactly what I needed. So my advice is see what position may be available in your school system and try something new.


I’m feeling the same way. I just left a teaching job and moved back to my home state where I thought the transition would spark my passion. It has some but I still feel like this just isn’t for me anymore. I’m more impatient and I raise my voice a lot more than I used to. I wake up every morning telling myself to be “softer” and nice 🙄 I just don’t know....


During my 23+ years I have just tried different grades and different jobs. Not everyone is cut-out to teach one grade for thirty years. They are so many ways to contribute than just in the classroom.


Yeah I’ve moved grade levels several times or I would have never made it this far. Just not sure what to do now

If you’re experiencing burn-out, then you definitely need a change. Whether it’s a change in grade levels or a completely new area ... do it! You will not only benefit both mentally and physically, you will gain a new prospective. In addition, you’ll be gaining experience in other areas of the educational system that will be insightful in being more well-rounded as an educator.


That’s the hard part. I don’t know what area to move into. What else can you do with a teaching degree?
