The Sharon Faye Foundation in collaboration with the School of Education, Edith Cowan University conducted research in a Western Australian primary school to assess the impact of building Emotional Strength in teachers on teacher burnout, student-teacher engagement and classroom climate.
The results indicated that building Emotional Strength in Teachers reduced teacher burnout; student disaffection, anger, boredom and worry and improved teacher and student engagement.
Despite a small sample size, there were statically significant results on several measures. These results are very encouraging and will be presented in more depth in the next Sharon Faye Foundation lecture scheduled in early 2020.
