Teacher mental health is of high concern when looking at the number of teachers leaving the profession. Schools are facing high levels of turnover due to teacher burnout. This issue did not arise as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the number of teachers leaving has increased since 2020. Teachers are feeling burnt out due to underlying issues of the education system. This research involves the reasons why teachers are feeling burnt out, what educators can do to help build self-resilience, and what leadership teams can implement to support teachers within their schools. The research goes broader and identifies what school districts and states are doing to help struggling teachers and schools. My findings are illustrated in a website designed to house multiple existing resources that educators and leadership teams can review and discuss. There are links to existing professional development opportunities for educators and administrators. The website also has resources for general mental health facts and statistics.
