Breaking the Burnout Cycle: Weaving Wellness and Building Bonds among School Staff

Session 1
Travis Delancey-Goodman, Jeannette Bautista, and John Clemente — South Bronx Community Charter High School

Teacher mental health is a real thing! It’s no secret that youth mental health is in crisis. Teachers aren’t okay either. Educators experience substantially higher rates of depression than the overall population. Nearly 50 percent leave the classroom within five years. Teaching is considered as stressful as working as an emergency room doctor (Hechinger Report August 2023). Educators are invited to learn more about a unique program "Adult Rites of Passage", which mirrors the siblinghood groups offered to students at South Bronx Community Charter High School. The Adult ROP space provides two functions: one is to learn more about the types of activities that can be conducted in the student space by doing them in groups of adults. The second is to provide respite from busy weeks of lesson planning and give adults a space to unwind, be silly, reflect and connect.
