Abstract: Teaching is considered nowadays as a high risk profession, with high levels of burnout and emotional exhaustion reported by many teachers across the world. However, the way stress is handled can make a significant difference on the impact it may have on work, health, wellbeing, and quality of life. Various strategies have been found to support teachers in their daily struggles and challenges of their profession and turn their challenges into opportunities for growth and development. In this video Teachers in Control: Managing the Stress of the Profession, we hear how six teachers from different parts of the world manage the stress in their workplace and prevent it from compromising the quality of their work, their health and wellbeing. In each part, teachers describe different strategies they have found useful and effective in coping effectively with stress at work. These stories of success and resilience should serve as an inspiration to fellow teachers across different cultures and contexts, on how they themselves in their own ways and according to their own contexts, may turn the challenges of the profession into opportunities to make a difference in the lives of so many children around the world.
