Schools have a critical role in fostering the health and safety of young people and helping them establish lifelong healthy behaviors. As the community begins to acknowledge the limited emphasis on educator and student mental health, many educators continue to be confronted with a general feeling of being overwhelmed to facing burnout. According to Psychology Today, burnout is described as “a state of chronic stress that leads to physical and emotional exhaustion, cynicism, detachment, and feelings of ineffectiveness and lack of accomplishment.” The emotional atmosphere in a classroom setting is impacts the experiences of all students. That atmosphere is affected by the emotional stability of the teacher and leaders.
