Research on the teaching profession in Russia shows that its prestige and effectiveness are becoming weaker. The research on the influence of the teaching and upbringing process on the state of students' health has shown that negative deviations in respiratory and cardiovascular systems, ability to work, and fatigue are not connected with classroom instruction, but the emergence of problems in the teacher's personal life, even without obvious outward symptoms. This prompts an instant reaction on the part of students, diminishing the effectiveness of teaching and learning activity. The teacher's profession entails a broad spectrum of professional risks that are not that visible at first glance, but can lead to professional deformations. The author suggests that a broad range of policies is needed to stem this decline, including greater material resources and rewards for teachers, and more support for their work on upbringing activities with students.
