Teacher Burnout in Special Education: The Personal Perspective of a Classroom Teacher.
Ingram, Leslie A.
A special education teacher recounts her own experiences of burnout, suggests a 5 stage progression for the condition, and lists 12 ways of managing the problem. Among possible solutions are keeping a journal to look at situations more objectively, creating a support system at school, getting involved in inservice, taking mental health days, and reflecting on the reasons for entering the profession.
