Often times one of the most effective stabilizing agents for stress experienced by teachers is when schools provide adequate resources for their teaching efforts. Supplying teachers with the resources to do their jobs effectively will reduce stress. As a result, teachers can better focus on educating and supporting their students. Schools should provide teachers with the necessary support staff, technology, and instructional materials. One resource that aids in this is a teacher toolbox, a digital collection of standards-based resources organized by grade-level standards. This platform simplifies the search for teaching materials, allowing teachers to better utilize their time. Providing sufficient time for teachers to prepare for classes is extremely important. Often, teachers’ work goes home with them, as does their workday stress. Giving teachers more time to prepare for class and grade assignments allows them to enjoy their free time — and practice self-care — at home.
