Abstract: Tish Jennings, author of the book Mindfulness for Teachers, states that stress has become such a problem for professors that “50% of teachers are leaving the profession within five years.”Jennings has found that classrooms can turn into “pressure cookers” as a result of teachers not dealing with their emotions in constructive ways. Teachers have so many outward considerations to focus on while managing a classroom that they are unable to tune into themselves, which can greatly interfere with the student’s education. In this short video, Jennings emphasizes the importance of mindfulness-based exercises in relieving stress for teachers.
