The demands being placed on teachers, especially during the pandemic, have led to an increase in professional and personal stress. This episode of A Seat at the Table will focus on what school and district leaders can do to help teachers develop their own social-emotional competencies to alleviate some of the strain that they feel on the job.

Join Education Week contributor and blogger Peter DeWitt as he sits down with David Adams, chief executive officer of The Urban Assembly, and classroom teacher Sera Deo for a lively discussion about the importance of supporting teacher mental health and well-being during this challenging season as many educators prepare to head back to the school building for in-person and hybrid teaching.
