Since it’s only the second week of school, I am hoping that no one is too stressed out yet! If you are stressed out, did you know that it could negatively affect your students?
The researchers found a link between the teachers’ levels of stress and the students’ level of stress in the morning. Of course, the study couldn’t definitively determine if the teachers’ stress caused the children’s stress or if it was the other way around. Regardless, it certainly gives us some food for thought as we think about stress being contagious!
Let’s make sure we all have a very restful weekend!
