Research has shown that teaching is a high-stress profession. Workplace stress not only impacts teachers’ health and well-being and the lives of their families and friends, but it also diminishes teacher effectiveness in the classroom. This can lead to disengagement and distances teachers emotionally and socially from their students, thereby compromising the teacher-student interaction.
