David Pope
David Pope
Baldwin Wallace University, Associate Professor of Music Education

Balancing work and home life is difficult for most music teachers. In many instances, music teachers sacrifice their personal well-being and time with their family so they can provide their students with quality experiences. This unhealthy divide was only exasperated during the pandemic. In this session, I will discuss the internal, external, and physical factors that cause teacher burnout, how to recognize the signs of burnout, and strategies for reducing teacher burnout. Attendees will also share their solutions for balancing their work and home lives.
