With the alarming rate of teachers leaving the educational field, there is a definitive shortage of people entering the field of special education. Educators need access to different tools and resources that will allow them to know about other things that can help limit or reduce the strain of things causing teacher burnout. By sending out these resources to educators and informing them of different tools they can use, we can help alleviate teacher burnout, keep more educators in the fields, and stop losing our young teachers just entering before they have even completed student teaching experiences. Each of these newsletters will contain different tips and strategies for educators who have been in the field for years and educators who are currently going into the field. Some newsletters will discuss various things, such as questions you should ask during your interview, whereas others are strategies and techniques you can add to your daily or weekly routines. I created five newsletters to help current educators and new educators , entering into the field deal with teacher burnout and find effective strategies to stay effective within the field.
